Charity

The Narberth Nobbler is a registered charity. Our charitable objectives revolve around promoting the participation of healthy recreation activities. This includes allowing people to access reasonably priced running events as well as allowing members of the community to participate by volunteering to help/marshal at our events.

We have been privileged enough to help over 5,000 runners participate in fun, adventurous (and always a bit stupid) events.

Our secondary goal is to raise money for local charities and good causes. If we have funds free after an event, we will donate. Shown below is a list of the groups we have donated to over the years.

Total donated: £43,850
