The Course More

The Ogi Porthcawl 10K takes place on fully closed-roads and has been devised by Race Director and double Olympic marathon runner Steve Brace, who has intimate knowledge of the local area.

The race starts and finishes with a festival atmosphere outside the historic Porthcawl Pavilion on the Promenade and will showcase the very best of the seaside town.

Runners will be treated to panoramic views across Newton Bay, Trecco Bay, Sandy Bay as they race through Trecco Bay Holiday Park and Coney Beach Pleasure Park, before setting off on the second-half of their 10K journey.

Live music gives the mass race a much needed boost through the heart of the town’s shopping district on John Street. As they conclude their 10K journey, runners will be treated to views of Rest Bay before the famous Porthcawl Lighthouse comes into view to signal a sprint finish along the Promenade.

In Wales, when someone shouts ‘Ogi!’ it’s impossible not to smile – or respond. That’s why we chose Ogi as our name: it’s about connecting people to one another, which is exactly what we do, digitally.

By building new full fibre internet infrastructure and bypassing old, worn connections we want to to give people, communities and businesses around south Wales a real online advantage. The full fibre connection (you’ll hear it called FTTP or Fibre To The Premises) will come right to your doorstep. It’s like an internet superhighway to your front door, leading anywhere you want to go. For real, connected living.
