Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run
That’s a wrap!
What a fantastic 2nd Swansea Bay 5k Summer Series and Fun Run that was! The Paul Popham Running Club, 360 Beach & Watersports and the Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales would like to thank all those who participated, sponsors volunteered and worked the event for making the 2nd year for the Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series a success!
The sun was shining, participants smiling and volunteers cheering it could not fail to produce such a wonderful atmosphere for 2018 series and fun run. We were delighted to see children as young as 4 taking part in the 1k and 2.5k and an increase in participants from 2017 with nearly 100 children taking part in the 3 events!
After the Fun Run came the 5k race which saw entrants take part from across the waters! Over 600 participants took part to chase the title of 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the Juniors, Female and Male categories!
