Important Information – Cardiff 10K 2022

The organisers of the Cardiff 10K & 2K Fun Run, Front Runner Events, today regrettably announce the postponement of the race that is scheduled for September 4th 2022.

David Martin-Jewell, Managing Director said:

“We are devastated that we are unable to host this year’s Cardiff 10K event.

Since taking over the event in November 2021, we have been looking forward to bringing this race back to the streets of Cardiff. We’ve liaised closely with all event stakeholders but delivery the event has proven far more challenging than anticipated to achieve giving the logistical and operationally situations that we have encountered.

Despite having explored a number of alternative options and scenarios in an attempt to mitigate the effect of circumstances which are sadly beyond our control, while also maintaining the nature and heritage of this race, we simply have not been able to find a viable solution.

Front Runner Events have already committed to a number of large orders in relation to the event, which are required due to the lead-in times from suppliers. Unfortunately, therefore, we cannot defer, transfer or offer refunds to runners due to the monies committed or already spent. However, there will be a virtual event to enable runners to make the most of their training and fund raising efforts.

David Martin-Jewell added ‘as frustrating as this is, we were not expecting so many challenges across such a wide range of areas. We are confident that the event will continue to grow when it returns in 2023”.

The virtual event will take place from 09.00 Sunday Aug 7th and will end at 19.00 on Sunday 11th September 2022. Full details of the virtual event have been sent to all runners by email.

All corporate entrants will be contacted in due course to discuss all options.

We thank you for your patience and understanding.
