Over 4,000 runners took part in this year's race just over a month ago on its popular picturesque and well established flat and fast course around the sweep of Swansea Bay. Record numbers of children also finished the 5k, 3k and 1k races held on the same afternoon.

Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Enterprise, Development and Regeneration, said: "People not used to running normally take a few months to get in shape for the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k, but just imagine what sort of time you could set or how fit you could get with a year's training under your belt?

"The event is one of the best of its kind in the UK because of the flat route set against the backdrop of stunning Swansea Bay. It gives professional athletes, hard-core runners, fun runners and charity fundraisers a great way to compete, set personal bests, conquer personal challenges or raise money.

"Starting your training now will also set you up for a good start to the New Year after the inevitable excesses of Christmas."

 The Admiral Swansea Bay 10k has also been nominated as the best 10k race in the UK Running Awards. If you supported, participated in or watched the event, visit http://www.therunningawards.com/vote to cast your vote and help the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k win this prestigious award.
