6th August 2023 Wales


The renowned summertime run is back with another scenic route, unbeatable crowd support and a feel-good atmosphere. The Barry Island 10k is a firm favourite among runners all over the UK bringing sun, sea, sand and entertainment to all those who attend.

After the race, everyone will be treated to the perfect afterparty with live music, entertainment, stand and tasty street food. Post-run you can enjoy relaxing on a deck chair or an optional (but very much encouraged) dip in the sea on Barry Islands sandy blue flag beach.

The 10K race takes place on fully closed roads with a rewarding route showcasing all of the town’s most scenic seaside spots and recognisable landmarks – including Whitmore Bay, the Knap, Romilly Park and Watch House Bay.
