Cardiff  Summer  Series

The series started back in 2012, we are back again for 2022 the series will consist of 4 races. As with previous years, we are aiming to organise these events along the basic and simplistic lines.

The race will start at 7.30pm, with registration open from 6.15pm and close at 7.00pm, this will be located near the Start/Finish area for each event

Races will Start and Finish within in Pontcanna Fields, with the Finishes are located on the Spine Road.

We've have decided to stick to the courses we used in 2019 to avoid the SWALEC stadium, and also to try and standardise the location of the Finish.

The Series Results will be done on the Cumulative Time over the 4 events.

We regularly get asked how old someone has to be to run in our races, please click here to see the UKA maximum distances based on age.

Our ethos is to provide low cost, value for money, friendly events and therefore we have chosen not to add additional costs to our entry fees by including finisher medals/T-shirts - this aligns with previous feedback from our runners.

However, on the night we do award prizes for the first 3 male and female runners, and we do provide series awards for category winners.
