New 10Km Road Race Set For Barry

Sun, sea, and sand will provide the backdrop to Run 4 Wales’ newest event – the Brecon Carreg Barry Island 10K which will take place on Sunday 5th August.

The brand-new 10K race will bring a festival of running to the popular seaside resort – which has enjoyed significant regeneration work in recent years – forming part of the popular Barry Island Weekenders series of summertime events.

Entries, which are now available, start at just £20 and include fully closed roads, an official technical event t-shirt and bespoke finishers medal.

The route takes in all of the town’s most scenic seaside spots and recognisable landmarks – including Whitmore Bay, the Knapp, Romilly Park and Watch House Bay.

A host of children’s activities and a Family Fun Run along the promenade will also take place giving budding athletes and families a chance to get in on the action.

The race is the third and final event in the Run 4 Wales 10K Series – which also includes the popular Cardiff Bay Run and new ABP Newport Wales 10K. A season ticket, granting entry into all three races will go on sale next week – offering a £10 overall discount. Only 1,000 discounted season tickets will be available.
