CAERPHILLY’s 10k race has been postponed to next year due to the ongoing pandemic.

Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k was set to take place on Sunday, September 12 but Caerphilly County Borough Council – who have been monitoring the Covid restrictions – believe that the easing of the restrictions will not be in time for the September date to go ahead fully and safely.

The 10k and 2k will now take place on Saturday, May 15, 2022.
