Route description
Route description

The Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10k course is based around a single lap course so lead runners are not likely to lap slower participants. The start and finish line are located off Crescent Road, behind Caerphilly Castle, marked by a gantry. Roads will be opened as part of a rolling road closure after the back runners have passed key points on the route.

Each runner will be issued with a timing chip as part of their information pack. The use of timing chips means that all participants will receive an accurate record of their runtime – regardless of which time they cross the Start Gantry.
