By Car

Please be aware that thousands of people will be aiming for the start of the race at the same time as you so we advise allowing plenty of time to travel and park.

If traveling Westbound on the M4, at junction 37 take the exit for Porthcawl/Pyle (A4229). Then, at the roundabout take the first exit for Porthcawl (A4229).


By Train

Pyle train station is the closest to Porthcawl (4.7 miles away). You can then catch a number 63 bus onwards to Porthcawl. 

One of the most reliable, stress-free and cost-effective ways to travel and avoid congestion is to travel to Porthcawl by train in advance of the event – why not make a weekend of it?


By Bike

We encourage sustainable transport where possible. A bike park will be available. Please note, bikes are left at the owner’s own risk.




Parking for the Healthspan Porthcawl 10K will be available at Salt Lake Car Park, Eastern Promenade (click for Google Maps pin), CF36 5TS (closest postcode) just over a 5 minute walk to the race start and finish, enabling easy access for runners and their spectators.

We would encourage users to arrive from junction 37 of the M4 and then follow event signage as they approach the town centre.

The car park will be open from 07:00 on Sunday 7th July ( please arrive as earlier as possible to avoid disappointment/any delays in getting to the race start)

The cost is £5 per vehicle. Please note that payment is CASH ONLY and to have the correct change where possible.
