Race organiser, Kidney Wales, has announced the 2018 route for the annual Nation Radio Cardiff 10K, which will take place this year on September 2nd.  The announcement took place at the official launch of the 2018 event which saw event staff, race supporters, suppliers and sponsors gather at Run and Become in Cardiff.  A big thank you to all who attended, to make this occasion with us.

With the plans for this years event to be the biggest yet with 10,000 runners expected to take part. The race team with the help of Cardiff Council has devised an exciting city centre route for 2018.  It will be the flattest and fastest yet and is set to be the most fun race to date. The race is open to runners of all standards, and due to the appealing flat feature of the new route, the course is now even more accessible than ever, offering a great opportunity for novice and experienced runners alike to take part in a run that is far more likely to be enjoyable than gruelling.

The route will run through the heart of Cardiff’s city centre, starting at King Edward VII Avenue, before winding past several of Cardiff’s most iconic sites, including the Principality Stadium and Cardiff Castle.

Kidney Wales Director, Nic Clarke, said: “We are thrilled to announce the 2018 route for the Nation Radio Cardiff 10K. This year’s race will be faster, flatter and more fun than ever before for runners of all abilities and ages across Wales and beyond. Taking part and raising money for our charity, really will make a difference; by raising vital funds you can actively improve the lives of kidney patients and their families in Wales.

“We’d like to take the chance to encourage more people to sign up and join in this September; whether the London marathon inspired you to break out your unused trainers and get moving, or you’re a seasoned runner looking to smash your personal best, be sure to sign up today to avoid disappointment. General entries for the 2017 Cardiff 10K & 2K sold out in record times, and with the launch of our route for this year, we anticipate the same will happen this year, with entries already picking up speed.
