Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k 2019
19 May, 2019 @ 10:00 am£6.50 – £20
The great 10K race is heading back to Caerphilly – are you ready?
The Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10K is set to return to Caerphilly Town Centre for the sixth consecutive year on Sunday 19th May 2019. This will be run alongside the Caerphilly 2k race, which will be held at Bryn Meadows itself..
This annual event is fast becoming a community favourite, with 2500 runners of all abilities descending on Caerphilly from across the country to enjoy the event. The run has grown in popularity every year and organisers are hoping that the 2019 event will be even bigger and better.
“Set in the shadow of the spectacular Caerphilly Castle, the Caerphilly 10k will both start and finish on Crescent Road. Runners will have the opportunity to run a good time on a relatively flat course with some undulating points. The course will lead participants in and around the town centre, passing iconic landmarks including the giant cheese sculpture and Tommy Cooper statue along the way and offering great views of the medieval castle, which dominates as the stunning backdrop to the event.”
The course record previously set by Owain Jones (31 minutes and 17 seconds) was broken last year by Matthew Clowes with an amazing time of 30 minutes and 33 seconds! Many elite and competitive entrants are out to break that record in 2019. So, even if you don’t feel like racing, why not head along to support these fantastic runners?
The event is organised by Caerphilly County Borough Council, sponsored by Bryn MeadowsGolf, Hotel and Spa and is supported by Welsh Athletics, Run Wales and Sport Wales.
