The BRAINS BEHIND PEGASUS….
cerys leads on logistics and operations, previously an executive assistant with organisations such as savills plc, principality building society and think money group, she is now co-founder and board director of repair cafe wales. she brings high level organisational expertise to pegasus together with an environmental awareness focused on the make do and mend culture that is encouraged across the organisation.
on pegasus race days, whilst rhys and cerys are instrumental, the organisation is ALSO incredibly priviledged to have a large devoted pegasus family that works together to ensure that our runners are extremely well looked after. our checkpoint teams have been compared to a slow and gentle version of the formula one pit stop teams, providing precision teamwork of a tightly knit and talented crew giving each and every runner the care, compassion and motivation they need to get them over the finish line.
