Caerphilly Trail 5k and 10k
SUNDAY 18 FEBRUARY 2024
These quiet trails are within a stone’s throw of Cardiff and and yet feel a world away.
Whether you’re looking for a thrilling fast race to push you on multi-terrain (there is a great downhill single-track!), a serene morning on the trails or a race to start your trail running adventures - this race has something for you.
Both routes will be fully marked so you can relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside around Caerphilly. You will pass through fields, woods and, yes, there will be a few hills! Just like our marathons and half marathons, you can expect spectacular scenery, a good variety of terrain and to cross the finish line with a huge sense of achievement!
