Course information

For 2021, we've needed to move the 5k event back to Singleton Park to accommodate the wave start times needed and avoid the road closure on Oystermouth Road.  The 5k route takes you on a scenic route through the popular Singleton Park and has a mixed terrain on paths and grass.

Meeting point

The start line is near the top end of the park, next to Swansea Botanical Gardens. Directions will be sigposted from the entrance.  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we’ll be operating a staggered start time in 2021 to ensure your safety on event day. Additional start times may become available as/when needed.

Car parking is available at this venue. Please follow signage and directions from stewards on the day.

Dogs allowed
Suitable for pushchairs
Not wheelchair accessible
No bag drop
No showers

The event site is on grass. The course route is a mixture of hardstanding utilising the paths within the park and has some uneven grass sections with an incline.  There is also a steep incline on one section of the course which would make it difficult for wheelchair users. 

Supporter / spectator access

Inviting your friends and family to support you on the day is a great idea, they can share in the joy with you as you cross the finish line and ring the bell.  They can also help you with those important things, like holding your belongings whilst you walk, jog or run round the course!

Please note, whilst we hope we can open our events to families and friends supporting on the day, this may not be possible due to government guidelines around COVID-19. We will update on this nearer the time.
