The National Botanic Gardens of Wales, in Llanarthne will play host to a double-header of running events over 2.5K, 5K and 10K in March & October with online entries now open.

Upcoming events are outlined below:

Tenovus Cancer Care Spring 10K & 5K & 2.5K - 28/04/19

Taking place on Sunday 28th April, The Tenovus Cancer Care 10K is now in its 7th year at the spectacular National Botanic Gardens of Wales.

There's no requirement to fundraise, however any monies raised will help support cancer patients and their loved ones.

10K run entry is £14 - with steady inclines and mixed terrain, there is no doubt that this is one of the most beautiful yet enjoyable 10k races in Wales.

5K run entry is £8 - the 5k route through the beautiful gardens is perfect for new runners and a great challenge to kick off the running season.

2.5K Family Fun Run entry is £5 - the 2.5k is perfect for the whole family, and stays within the garden grounds on hard surfaces. Perfect for buggies, strollers and little feet.

The races will start at 11am and on the day registration is from 8am - 10am.

Trophies will be given for category winners and supporters and spectators will get half price entry to the Gardens. It's sure to be a great day out for all those who come to cheer on the runners.

Don't fancy running yourself, or know somebody that is? You could always help by volunteering on the day. Organisers are looking for volunteers to help with the event and provide encouragement along the way at cheering stations.
