barry island 10k

   Tŷ Hafan are delighted to be the lead charity partner for the second year running #runtheisland

Date: Sunday 4 August 2019
Charity spaces: free entry for the first 20 spaces and then £4.99 thereafter

Sun, sea, and sand provide the backdrop to the Barry Island 10K – which brings a summertime festival of running to the popular seaside resort with a 10K race and family fun run. A firm favourite with runners – renowned for it’s varied and scenic route, unbeatable crowd support and feel-good atmosphere.

The 10K race takes place on fully closed roads with a challenging yet rewarding route showcasing all of the town’s most scenic seaside spots and recognisable landmarks – including Whitmore Bay, the Knap, Romilly Park and Watch House Bay.

Whether you’re a first time runner or a seasoned pro, the Barry Island 10K is going to be an exciting event in a superb location.  To mark our 20th year, the first 20 spaces are completing free and thereafter will be the discounted rate of £4.99 when pledging to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship which could pay for four hours of emotional support from a family support practitioner, helping families to deal with the daily challenges they face.

We will give you all the help, support and encouragement you need and as part of our promise to you we will offer you:

  • A dedicated charity representative providing you with help and support
  • Regular communications including fundraising hints and tips
  • A free running vest
  • Branded materials to support you if you're organising your own event
