Swansea Bay Summer 5k Series and Fun Run Race 3 Round Up

By Latest News

14th July 2019!

That’s a wrap! Thank you one and all who took part, sponsored, volunteered, helped organise the 2019 series! As a result of everyone’s support, we have managed to raise £2,500 for the Paul Popham Fund, Renal Support Wales to support kidney patients participate in the British Transplant Games that take place in Newport from the 25th to 28th July 2019!

We were very unsure how this year would go when the event’s base, 360 Beach & Watersports closed at the end of last year. The team at Secret Beach Bar & Restaurant who have taken over the venue put all the stops out to make sure the event went smoothly, with the new venue opening for the last event in the series. We are very much looking forward to the 2020 series!

There will be developments in the series for 2020 with more category winners, overall series winner – clear scoring system and Girl and Boy 1st, 2nd and 3rd podium finishers for the 1k and 2,5k fun runs! Until then, check out the winners of the July series and the overall winners of the 5k series.


ALL participants, volunteers from PPRC – special shout out to Lee Heighway for organising the volunteer team, Scott Powell and daughter from Tri and Enter improving our timing system this year and from this year on, Rhys Morris for providing the music and entertainment, Faclk Medical Services for providing the medical cover for the whole series as part of our own going business partnership and to the staff and owners of Secret Beach Bar & restaurant staff. And finally thank you to all our sponsors Verdis, Gemeg, Home from Home, Freedom Leisure and The LC, J&S Products and First4Numbers without you all this event would not be possible so thank you, thank you!

General Information The route will be marshalled and there will be signs up to warn the general public that there is a race on – however – we would also ask you to bear in mind that the race does not have a right of way and that you respect the general public, that you are mindful of your own safety and be aware of any cyclists on the path and that you keep to the right-hand side to avoid collisions with oncoming athletes.

There is limited parking at SEVEN however there is plenty of parking in the streets opposite the area and also in the recreational area.

SEVEN is still under construction and currently will not be open for the May event; therefore the catering is outside and consists of a BBQ and a Bar both supplied by SEVEN. After the race, you can collect your burger and a beer or soft drink from the outside BBQ and Bar area, please show your race number to collect.

Unfortunately, due to limited resources, there will be NO kids beach activities for the May event.
