This years Cardiff 10K saw a record breaking 7000 runners sign up for our annual Cardiff 10K on Sunday 3 September, with a further 1,000 runners taking part in the 2K Family Run. Spirits remained high, and the race day atmosphere continued throughout the day despite the miserable weather conditions. Our participants included our elite field, running clubs, colleagues, friends and families with thousands of runners taking part for Kidney Wales and other local causes.
In a change from the well-known route of previous years, runners went through the east of the city passing the National Museum Wales, Cardiff University and Roath Park. Runners very much welcomed the change, and enjoyed the new route for 2017. The first runner to cross the finish line after 28 minutes and 47 seconds was Swansea Harriers runner Dewi Griffiths. The race results can be found here.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the runners, volunteers organisers and sponsors who contributed to the success of this years race. The Cardiff 10K continues to be a vital source of support for those needing our help. Money raised through this years race will help us continue our work supporting those living with renal disease in Wales. Most notably, it will help fund our ambition to open a wellness centre here in Wales – a place for families to visit and find some respite from the day to day struggle of life with kidney disease.
Thank you for your support, we hope to see you at next years race!
Diolch o galon.
