Get Race Ready


Race Day Information

Location: Civic Centre, Cardiff.

Date & Time: Sunday 1 September 2024. The 10K begins at 10:00am.

Race Pack and Number: Your race number and a race day guide will be posted to you within a week of the race. Your pack will include a running bib, with a unique race number. It’s vital that you keep this safe as a timing chip (which enables us to give you your finishing time) is embedded into all 10K race numbers – which cannot be reissued.

Please pin the number to the front of your t-shirt on race day, and remember to complete the medical information on the back of your race number. This is VERY important.

What’s Included: 10K race entry includes a finishers medal, technical race t-shirt and live tracking through the Run 4 Wales app. Junior Race (Fun Run and Future Challengers) entry includes a commemorative medal. Medals (both races) and t-shirts (10K only) will be distributed at the finish line of your race.

Travel & Parking: Cardiff is easily accessible by foot, bike, car, bus and train. To embrace a sustainable event, we encourage active travel such as walking or cycling (the city has many accessible cycle routes). 

For those arriving by bike, there will be a free bike park available in the Event Village.

Baggage: Bag storage is situated in the Event Village and will be open from 08:30am. Tear off the baggage label strip on the bottom of your 10K race number and attach it to your bag before you arrive.

10K Race Start: The 10km race starts on King Edward VII Avenue. The solid colour (either white, green, red, blue or yellow) behind the number on your running bib will dictate which starting pen you must assemble in before the race.

To avoid confusion on the day it is vital that you look at the Venue Map in your Race Day Guide (posted to your prior to the event) for details on how to access your starting pen. Pens will open at 09:45am.

Junior Races: For details on our Junior Races, click here.

Health and Safety: Our 10K route takes place on fully closed roads, but competitors should be aware of their surroundings and listen out for marshal’s instructions for their own health and safety. Trip hazards, such as speed bumps will be clearly signposted but please keep an eye out!
