Route description
Route description

The route of the Barry Island 10K takes in all of the area’s most scenic seaside spots.

It will begin near the sea front at Whitmore Bay and take participants from the promenade through Barry’s regenerated retail area before arching around the iconic Barry Dock Offices building. After heading up Subway Road, runners will go down Broad Street, pass Barry Train Station and head into the pretty Romilly Park.

Scenic views of the Bristol Channel and Porthkerry Country Park await runners from the 6K mark, before running alongside the picturesque Knapp pebble beach and Watch House Bay. Next, they’ll run up The Parade before heading back to the Island to take on the final 2K.

Runners will pass the roaring crowds before a loop of the amusement centre and a downhill finish alongside the gardens of Friars Road, overlooking Whitmore Bay.
