Location: Roald Dahl Plass, Cardiff Bay.

Date & Time: 2025 Date TBC. The 10K begins at 11:00am, the Junior Races begin from 09:30am.

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.

Travel & Parking: Cardiff Bay is easily accessible by foot, bike, car, bus and train (via Cardiff Queen Street). To embrace a sustainable event, we encourage active travel such as walking or cycling (the city has many accessible cycle routes). Click here for available train options (but note these can be subject to change, always check before you travel).

There are very limited parking options in Cardiff Bay because of the road closures in place for the event, so car sharing is encouraged, and we recommend parking in the city centre (which is a short 1-mile walk or warm up jog from the Bay).

A free bike park will be available for those cycling to the event. The park is located in Roald Dahl Plass, right in front of the Wales Millennium Centre.

Baggage: Bag storage is situated behind the Pierhead Building, and will be open from 9:00am. Tear of 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 in the Roald Dahl Plass. The solid colour (either white, green, red, 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 the Race Day Guide (below) for details on how to access your starting pen. Pens will open at 10:45am.

Junior Races: The Cardiff Bay Junior will commence from 09:30 with the Future Challengers, then the Fun Run at 09:45, followed by the Toddler Dash at 10:20. Races will start and finish in the Roald Dahl Plass.

Health and Safety: Our 10K route takes place on fully closed roads, but competitors should be aware of their surroundings and listen out for the 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!
