About Us

Everyone involved with Cardiff Running Events is a member of or connected to Les Croupiers Running Club and is a runner, or has been a runner. So we know what runners want from events, we aim to take running and races back to basics in order to keep that friendly local feel.

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, we do provide category winner prizes and at some of our events we also supply tea/coffee and cake at the end of the race!

Our Events

The events we offer come in 3 categories, stand alone events, series of events, and also a multi event challenge.

If you need anymore information about any of our events please see the event pages or you can contact us here.
