You don’t have to run the main race to get involved in the 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!

ENTRIES FOR THE FAMILY RACES WILL OPEN SOON!

 

FAMILY FUN RUN

Time: 12:20pm and 1:00pm.

Get your whole family involved in the 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!
