You don’t have to run the main race to get involved in the ABP Barry Island 10K! The race forms part of the Barry Island Weekenders programme, which on race weekend will be a Sports Weekender.

There’ll be loads of sporting activities across the prom with demos and taster sessions from local sports clubs and organisations between midday and 5pm – plus our Family Fun Runs and Toddler Dash!




Time: 12:20pm and 1:00pm.

Price: £5, or a discounted £15 for groups of 4

To receive your Family Race Pack in the post before event day, please make sure to enter before our Postage Deadline on Mon 12 July at midnight. All entries after this date must be collected from the Event Information Tent on event day.

Distance: 1 Mile

Get your whole family involved in the ABP Barry Island 10K with our Family Fun Run! Perfectly suited to all ages and abilities, the race features a one-mile route along the promenade at Whitmore Bay. 

There’s no pressure to record fast times or even run all the way. Instead, dig out your best fancy dress, drag along all of your family and friends and enjoy the experience. Expect a vibrant atmosphere, plenty of support from the crowds and a commemorative medal at the finish line!

There are no age limits for the race, but children under eight must be accompanied by an adult, and unaccompanied children must be brought to the start and met at the fun run exit. Pushchairs are allowed, and fancy dress is encouraged!


Time: 12:40pm

Price: £2 (which will be donated to charity partner)

Distance: 50m

Route: Barry Island Promenade, Friars Road

Family race registrations close on 12th July, but you will be able to register from then up until 27th July and collect your race packs from our Event Information tent on race day morning.
