The Cardiff 10K, powered by leading Welsh charity Kidney Wales has announced a new chapter for one of the UK’s top 5 road races with a Nation Radio Wales partnership and a new flat and fast city route.

Established in 1985 by Kidney Wales, the Cardiff 10K has grown from accommodating 500 to 8,000 runners in 2017, attracting professional athletes and runners from across Wales and England as well as international participants.

The date has been set for The 2018 Nation Radio Cardiff 10K, taking place on Sunday 2 of September 2018 with increased capacity for a planned 10,000 runners. Entries will open on New Year’s Day with an early bird discount available for the first 750 applications completed.

The launch was marked by a visit to Nation Radio’s broadcasting studios near St Hilary where their Big Welsh Wake Up breakfast presenters Carl Hughes and Rachel Chew joined the Kidney Wales team and the Cardiff 10K Race Director Graham Finlayson to officially launch the partnership.

Leading UK and Welsh Athlete Dewi Griffiths, winner of the 2017 race said: “The Cardiff 10k is one of the leading UK 10K running events and I was honoured to win it this year.  However, it was the 8,000 runners in 2017 along with the supporters that created a great atmosphere and that made such a difference to everyone on the day.”

After a record-breaking event in 2017 which saw over 8,000 people take to the streets of the city centre, The Nation Radio Cardiff 10K will soon share with Cardiff Council further details on its revamped flat and fast route.
