*Cancelling Ras yr Iaith 2020*

Rhedadeg cyf and Mentrau Iaith Cymru have had to make the difficult decision to cancel Ras yr Iaith 2020.

In the midst of the Coronavirus uncertainty over the next few months, it was decided to cancel the Ras for this year. Preperations were going ahead to hold Ras yr Iaith in a number of towns throughout Wales on July 7, 8 and 9th this year, but this decision was inevitible.

Keep your eyes peeled for confirmation of Ras yr Iaith dates in 2021!

Our thanks also goes to the individual Mentrau Iaith for organising the Race in their towns –  Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam; Menter Iaith Bangor Menter Iaith Môn; Menter Iaith ConwyHunaniaithCered - Menter Iaith Ceredigion; Menter Iaith Sir BenfroMenter Gorllewin Sir GârMenter Bro DinefwrMenter Cwm Gwendraeth ElliMenter Brycheiniog a MaesyfedMenter Iaith Castell Nedd Port TalbotMenter Iaith AbertaweMenter Iaith Bro Ogwr; & Menter Caerffili
