The Porthcawl 10K is an exciting addition to the town known for its surf, sports and coastal walks.
A summertime hotspot for both locals and visitors – Porthcawl is renowned for shining under the sun.
The all-new race will take place on closed-roads, taking in a number of landmarks and stunning seaside spots including Rest Bay, Trecco Bay, Coney Bay, the picturesque town centre, historic Grand Pavillion and the iconic Porthcawl Lighthouse.
A host of other sporting activities for families and children will also be included in the day’s action – including an electrifying new Family Fun Run, giving budding athletes a chance to take their first footsteps into running.

How you can help young people
- £25 could pay for 1 hour of time for a Youth Support Co-ordinator, who’ll be there for young people and help them get together and support each other.
- £50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.
- £100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find our about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.
- £230 could buy a real hair wig and salon styling from our Hair4U project – and help make the pain of hair loss a little easier to deal with.
- £500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
