Entries for the Admiral Swansea Bay 10K in 2019 has opened on 1st January. The event takes place on Sunday 22nd September 2019 and will see the popular 10K race return as well as the junior races on offer, all with brand new starting times.


The Admiral Swansea Bay was recently voted the Best 10K race in Wales at the Running Awards with the event also shortlisted for the Best 10K in the UK.

The Admiral Swansea Bay 10K takes place along the beautiful and iconic sweep of Swansea Bay, open to all abilities aged 15+. The course is a firm favourite with both experienced and first time runners, as the fast and flat course is a perfect introduction to road running, and perfect for improving your personal best. All of this, combined with a great family atmosphere resulted in the race winning Silver for Best 10k in the UK for the past two years in a row at the UK Running Awards.

This event also provides a great introduction to road running for children with their junior distances. Their fun, friendly atmosphere ensures everyone has a great time, with parents allowed to run with their little ones too.




Thousands of runners and spectators took to the streets of Swansea in mid-September for the 2018 annual event earlier this year. Around 5,000 runners took centre stage for what is one of the top events of its kind in the UK, attracting fans and competitors from across the UK.

As well as the 10K this year won by Cardiff's Matt Clowes, there were the 1K, 3K and 5K junior fun runs, a 10K wheelchair race and a 100m mascot dash."

Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council's Cabinet Member for Innovation, Regeneration and Tourism said: "It was a joy for our city to host so many running enthusiasts this weekend. The Admiral Swansea Bay 10K has a runner-friendly course with some of the finest views anywhere in the UK - it's a real celebration of Swansea sports culture."

"It's a fantastic event for elite athletes, experienced runners and first timers, or anyone looking to raise money for charity or tackle personal fitness challenges."

"We're delighted with the huge crowd of spectators which - yet again - added to the amazing community feel and great family atmosphere that helps to inspire everyone who takes part."
