With the end of winter edging closer, attentions are turning to brighter days and the inaugural year of the Porthcawl 10K, taking place on Sunday 7th July. We want to help get runners in the spirit of things, even though we’ve still got some time to wait until the start gun sounds! Here are our 10 reasons to start getting excited.

Summer is on its way

Kind of, anyway! The Porthcawl 10K takes place in the height of summer – and who doesn’t want to enjoy a 10K race along the beautiful Porthcawl coastline in July?

Stunning seaside sights

The Porthcawl 10K route has now been announced, and there’s plenty to see on your 10K adventure, from three beautiful bays to the iconic Porthcawl lighthouse.

A new medal for your collection

Plans are underway for the Porthcawl 10K and Family Fun Run finishers medal. What do you want to see on your first-year bling?

And t-shirt to wear with pride

Like the medal, we want our inaugural year t-shirt help you to stand out from the crowd! It’ll be well worth all that hard work in training.

Porthcawl have been here before!

Look at this picture back in the 1990s, the last time Porthcawl held a race of this sorts! See on the far right in the yellow top, Steve Brace, the man behind the Porthcawl 10K route in 2019!
