The Caerphilly 10k returns on Sunday 19th June – and entry prices are frozen until 31st January!


The start and finish line are located off Crescent Road, behind Caerphilly Castle, marked by a gantry.


The event, which is the third most popular 10k event in Wales, just behind Cardiff and Swansea, attracted close to 2,000 participants last year, and leads participants in and around Caerphilly town centre – passing local landmarks including the Tommy Cooper statue along the way and offering great views of the wonderful castle.

Also returning is the Caerphilly 2k run, offering younger runners a chance to get involved in this timed event. Participants must be at least 8 on the day of the event in order to participate.

Entry fees are £16.50 for unaffiliated entrants, £14.50 for affiliated/Welsh Athletics entrants, £14.50 for concessions (over 60’s and wheelchair users) and £6.50 for 2k runners. All fees include booking fee and transaction charges.

Cllr Nigel George said:

“The Caerphilly 10k continues to be one of our most popular events, and has grown substantially in popularity since the inaugural event in 2013. It is an event which attracts people from right across the country to participate and really helps to showcase all that Caerphilly has to offer to people from far and wide. It was wonderful to see so many people taking on the challenge last year, and whether participants have the aim of putting in a good time, raising money for good causes or simply as a personal challenge to themselves, I am sure more people than ever will be keen to lace up their trainers and participate in 2016”.

The Caerphilly 10k is being organised by Caerphilly County Borough Council, in partnership with Welsh Athletics and Run Wales.
