The first race in the series takes place in Cardiff on May 31 at Bute Park, a gorgeous parkland featuring lovely scenery and a nationally renowned array of unique, ornamental trees.


TV comedy star, Ruth Jones, known for her comic roles in Gavin and Stacy and Stella will also be running in the event. Getting into running this year after being part of a three-person relay team in the Cardiff half, Ruth has fallen in love with the sport.


Ruth will be pulling together a team with her work colleagues and is urging everyone to get involved in running even if they feel unsure of their abilities. ‘Seriously, look at me – if I can do it anyone can. I can’t believe I’m actually looking online for runs that I can do. The WR10K in Cardiff’s Bute Park is one I’m definitely signing up for  – Bute Park is gorgeous.’
