New 10k race around Cardiff Bay


Set in the heart of Cardiff’s historic Bay, the Cardiff Bay Run is a flat, fast and friendly event for all ages and abilities.

Previously known as the Cardiff Bay 5 Mile, the race is back by popular demand with a little makeover for 2017 with a stunning new 10km course around Cardiff Bay.

The route takes in all of Cardiff Bay’s most iconic landmarks, starting and finishing in Roald Dahl Plass and passing the Wales Millennium Centre, Mermaid Quay, the Pierhead Building, Senedd, Porth Teigr and the Cardiff Bay Barrage.

It’s a perfect challenge for elite and club athletes as well as those looking to keep fit, raise money for charity or take on the challenge of their first event!

With no pressure or obligation to set record times or run all the way round, whether you take part in the fun run or 10k, join in and put a spring in your step.

Our Charity Partner







Cystic Fibrosis Trust are proud to be the official charity partner of the Cardiff Bay Run again in 2017 and invite you to join them on the day to run with Team CF.

What is cystic fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition that affects more than 10,500 people in the UK, slowly destroying the lungs and digestive system. Living with cystic fibrosis means a daily burden of time-consuming physiotherapy and a vast intake of pills, just to stay healthy. And yet only half will live to see their 40th birthday.

1 in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes cystic fibrosis.

5 babies are born with cystic fibrosis each week

2 people a week lose their lives to the condition

Why should you run with Team CF?

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis for everyone living with the condition. We are investing in cutting edge research, supporting clinical care, and campaigning tirelessly on the issues that matter, but we need your help. Together we will beat cystic fibrosis for good.

We promise our runners loads of support and encouragement along the way including:

  • Team CF exclusive running top to wear with pride on race day
  • Fundraising pack, ideas and support from your own community fundraising team
  • New online and exclusive interactive Training Zone
  • Team e-newsletters and access to our Team CF Runners Facebook Group
  • On the day support and hospitality in the charity village

Running with Team CF will help us make a difference for thousands of people with cystic fibrosis in the UK, and their families and carers.
