A 10K race around Cardiff Bay

Healthspan 10 Initiative

The Cardiff Bay Run forms part of the Healthspan 10 Initiative, part of an innovative partnership between Healthspan, the UK’s leading direct vitamin and supplement supplier and Run 4 Wales, the team behind Wales’ largest mass-participation running and cycling events. It’s been launched to emphasise the principles of staying active, eating well and being positive to those who want to achieve a greater sense of overall well-being.

The Cardiff Bay RunABP Newport Wales 10K, Barry Island 10K and one new, soon to be announced 10K race are all part of the Healthspan 10 Initiative. It has created a platform for engagement with those that are new to the fitness world and need that extra bit of encouragement and support. Finishers in each race are given the opportunity to sample Healthspan products and three lucky groups of social media recruits were recruited to join Team Healthspan in 2018 and take on the races together.

The group of 30 runners were helped every step of the way by a range of Healthspan goodies as well as the expertise of Healthspan ambassador Iwan Thomas, who joined the team on the start line of the Brecon Carreg Barry Island 10K.

In 2018 Healthspan ambassador Iwan Thomas started and ran the race, and Healthspan donated £10 per runner for every participant who beat the former World Champion to children’s hospice, Tŷ Hafan as part of the #IBeatIwan campaign.

Stay tuned for exciting Healthspan 10 Initiative activities across the series in 2019!
