This was a pilot event in 2018 and following the response and feedback we have received over both previous editions, having lost 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19, we are putting the event on again in 2022. The course will use Pontcanna Fields and Bute Park before heading north along the Taff Trail to Tongwynlais, where you will do a turnaround loop and then head for home. 

Drink stations will be positioned at approx. : 2.5 miles ; 4 miles ; 6.25 miles ; 8.75 miles and 10.25 miles.

The course will run on tarmac paths except for one short stretch of compacted path.


Unfortunately we will have to apply a 3 hour cut off for the event, this is due to the agreement we have with the council.
