Race against a backdrop of sun, sea and sand
Sun, sea and sand provide the backdrop to the ABP Barry Island 10K – renowned for its feel good atmosphere and varied route.
The race, which forms part of the Healthspan Wales 10K Series takes place on fully closed roads, offers a rewarding route that showcases all of the town’s most scenic seaside spots and recognisable landmarks.
A host of children’s activities including a Family Fun Run and Toddler Dash take place along the promenade – giving budding athletes and families a chance to get in on the action.
Races start and finish at the iconic Whitmore Bay, which also hosts an exciting Event Village with live music, entertainment, stands and tasty street food. Relax on a deck chair post-run or enjoy an optional (but very much encouraged) dip in the sea on Barry’s sandy blue flag beach.
A guaranteed good day out of summertime fun awaits runners of all ages and abilities, taking in spots like Whitmore Bay, The Knap, Romilly Park and Watch House Bay.
