Cardiff Bay 5 Mile


Entries are now open for the fourth Tata Steel Cardiff Bay 5 that will again take place on the May Day Bank Holiday Monday.

The 5-mile route takes you over the barrage that links Cardiff to Penarth - with fresh water on one side of you and salt water on the other; don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife in the water too.

Our 2k Fun Run is open to everyone regardless of age or ability; its purpose is to enable everyone to be part of a mass participation event with no pressure whatsoever to sprint, break any records or even run at all. So, if you want to race or walk backwards, you are most welcome (though we'd strongly recommend you start at the back if you do choose to walk the 2k in reverse!) - it's fun for all...

Cardiff Bay has been beautifully renovated in the last few years so get your family and friends together and head down to the Welsh capital - you could enter a team from your athletics club, school, work, gym, college etc. too.

Enter online now or hit Need more info? if you'd like us to send you an entry form. Don't forget to get your family, friends and colleagues to take part too - you can even enter as a team of 5 if you like!

We are delighted to haveTata Steel as title sponsor of our event and we are very grateful for the ongoing support of Associated British Ports, Cardiff Central Police, Cardiff County Council, National Assembly for Wales, Vinci Construction UK Ltd, Welsh Athletics and many other fantastic volunteers who together make this event possible.

Over 1,000 of you joined us in the 2011 events - here's the results of the 2011 Cardiff Bay 5-mile run.
