A huge success at the Caerphilly 10K 2024
The sun was shining as runners descended on Caerphilly for the annual Bryn Meadows 10K and 2K run on Sunday 12th May.

The course set in the shadows of the spectacular Caerphilly Castle led over 2000 runners in and around the town centre, passing iconic landmarks such as the tommy cooper statute and the giant cheese sculpture.

The popular 10K run which attracts runners from across Wales and beyond was the Welsh Athletics 10K Road Running Championships and part of the Welsh Road Race Series. Dewi Griffiths, broke his own course record crossing the 10k finish line in 29 minutes and 12 seconds. The first female to across the line was Lauren Cooper completing the course in 36 minutes and 20 seconds.

The 2K fun run event attracting more people every year was a huge success with local schools, community groups and sports clubs taking part.

Leader of the council, Cllr. Sean Morgan, who ran the Caerphilly 10K, commented “It was a great event as usual, organised by the Sport Development and Events Team. The atmosphere around the town centre and along the course was fantastic and it was great to see so many local businesses and local people getting involved and supporting the runners”.

Cllr Chris Morgan, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said “It was fantastic to see so many people from all over the region coming together to take part in the Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10K and 2K. The event supports our vision of getting more people, more active, more often. We hope to see everyone again next year!”
