The Healthspan Porthcawl 10K is an exciting addition to the town known for its surf, sports and coastal walks. A summertime hotspot for both locals and visitors – Porthcawl is renowned for shining under the sun.

The all-new race will take place on closed-roads, taking in the Porthcawl seafront, including one of Wales’ most famous surf spots, Rest Bay, and the picturesque Sandy Bay and Trecco Bay. The route will also journey through the coastal town centre and historic Grand Pavilion, with a view over the town’s most iconic landmark – the Porthcawl lighthouse.

A host of other sporting activities for families and children will also be included in the day’s action – including an electrifying new Family Fun Run, giving budding athletes a chance to take their first footsteps into running.

It’s delivered by Run 4 Wales, the events team behind the Cardiff Half Marathon, Newport Wales Marathon & VELOTHON Wales. The event forms part of the Run 4 Wales 10K Series and Healthspan 10 Initiative – joined by the ABP Newport Wales 10K, Barry Island 10K and Cardiff Bay Run. Multi-Event Passes are available for discounted entry when entering two or more races.
