BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Challenge Alfie

Challenge Alfie

Wales: 100 caps. British & Irish Lions: 3 caps. Cardiff Half Marathons: 0... until now that is!

Ex-International rugby star, Gareth Thomas is faced with one of his toughest challenges yet - getting a group of 16 out-of-shape women of various ages and backgrounds from South Wales fit and healthy in time for the Cardiff Half Marathon.

We caught up with coach 'Alfie' to see how he's getting on.

You can watch 'Alfie's Angels' put through their paces on 'Run for your Life' series as part of BBC One Cymru Wales' Live Longer Wales season.

If the women from Caerphilly have inspired you to consider running, or if you are interested in joining a club near you, take a look at our guide to running.
