The route for the first ever Parc Margam 10k run has been revealed.
The mixed terrain run is set to take place on Sunday 13th March (10am start) in support of the Mayor of Neath Port Talbot’s Charity Fund.
The scenic 5k loop will start and finish at the 19th Century Tudor Gothic Mansion, and will showcase the very best of Margam Park. Runners will pass alongside three of the park’s lakes before meandering through its woodland trails and past the fields home to the famous Margam Deer Herd.
Entrants can choose between 10k and 5k routes, and as well as enjoying the run through the historic park, they will help raise funds and awareness for the two very worthy causes – the Neath Port Talbot Cancer Challenge and British Heart Foundation Cymru.
All runners will receive a bespoke participant medal as well as an accurate run time from their timing chip.
To be part of this exciting event, you can register online at: www.margamcountrypark.co.uk/10k . Entry to the race costs £20 per person.
The Mayor of Neath Port Talbot, Cllr John Warman, said: “Whether you want to push yourself, come in fancy dress or just have a gentle run with some friends, the Parc Margam 10k is a great way to blow away the winter cobwebs and get yourself ready for Spring in these breath-taking surroundings.
“Also you will be helping to publicise and raise money for my two Mayor’s Charities, the British Heart Foundation Cymru and Neath Port Talbot Cancer Challenge (NPTCC).”
Run by volunteers, NPTCC is a local charity that helps local people. Its aim is to help with the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer. The charity raise funds to purchase equipment for local hospitals in Neath Port Talbot, Singleton, Morriston and Bridgend.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF) Cymru helps to fund life saving research into heart and circulatory diseases to find better ways of treating, diagnosing and ultimately curing them.
The brand new event is being supported by John Pye Auctions, Auction City, Kenfig Industrial Estate, Margam – Europe’s largest indoor general auction facility.
