Rabbit Run Wales

Stunning trail races on the Merthyr Mawr Estate


The Rabbit Run is a stunning trail race that offers the unique opportunity to run on the private grounds of the Merthyr Mawr Estate.

Set on the South Wales coast, the Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve is a haven for wildlife and a trail-running paradise.

The race takes in stunning trails, hills, valleys, a river crossing, and the chance to experience a tumble down the Big Dipper,  the highest sand dune in Wales. 

The event is delivered in partnership by the Merthyr Mawr Estate, Bridgend Athletics & Run 4 Wales (R4W).
