Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series & Fun Run 2022 - Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run 2022

We are pleased to be bringing back the Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run, which will be in its 4th year. After a period of absence due to COVID-19 we are excited to for its return and, as previously, all proceeds will be donated to the Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales who support children, youths and adults with kidney disease, their families and carers in Wales, to lead a better quality of life.

This year the series will take place on the second Wednesday of May, June and July, with the main race starting at 7pm and the children’s fun run starting at 6pm.

As this is the first time that we will be organising this event since COVID, we have had to make some changes to the event and route.

The route will start near Swansea Cenotaph on the beach side, take you straight up to SA1 along the Seafront, turning around the first little green area and back along the same path, ending just before Secret.

We want to welcome all past and new participants back to this competitive and fun event and help us proudly mark its return! With that in mind, we have reduced the fee to say thank you in advance of your continued support!
