The Bryn Meadows Caerphilly 10km

It was my 1st attempt at the Caerphilly 10k and I did’nt know what to expect. But on arrival I was blown away, with hundreds of runners at the event in the beautiful fields by the historical Caerphilly castle.

The event had all the necessary facilities and food outlets, as well as a inflatable slide for the children. It was family orientated and lots of supporters

Its was a very hot day on Sunday 2oth 2018 and a family run of 2km kicked of the day with great support.

For the 10k, we lined up around 10:15am and the gun went off at 10:30am. The race started and finished at Crescent Road, directly behind the castle.

The course was very challenging with hills and with the weather being so hot many of local helped by using their hoses as showers, that helps so much.

With a finish time of 51:52 I was so happy, although it wasn’t a PB it was a run in tough conditions.

Overall the day was magnificent and I am running it next year, with a determination to attain a PB.
