2021 Cardiff Metropolitan University Cardiff 10K – Virtual Run
The 2021 Cardiff Metropolitan University Cardiff 10K has unfortunately been postponed due to the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19 restrictions and the return of mass participation events in Wales.
Race organisers Kidney Wales have launched the 2021 event as a virtual 10K, with the attempt to re coup some of the fundraising income that we are expecting to lose due to the event not being able to go ahead.
