Welcome to the site dedicated to SSAFA Cardiff’s 5K Race Series.
At the moment, all race planning is on hold pending announcements from the authorities. Also, if, as part of some hybrid relaxation plan, ‘social distancing’ were to be retained, we would be unable to stage any races.
The next update will follow news of changes to pandemic restrictions.
The first race of the 2021 Series has been cancelled.
The two remaining races may be held on the dates originally proposed (Wednesdays, 23rd June and 21st July) but these remain subject to confirmation.
A further update is expected by the end of May.
The following dates have been proposed for the 2021 edition of the SSAFA Cardiff 5K Race Series:
Wednesdays, 19th May, 23rd June and 21st July
Having been tentatively agreed with the authorities, the dates are therefore subject only to pandemic considerations.
UPDATE 31.03.2020: The 2020 Series has now been suspended with the possibility that a single race may take place during the month of August this year. Further news on this will appear here in due course.
The 2020 edition of the race Series is on and this year’s dates have been arranged. The races are held on three Wednesday evenings (one per month) and the Blackweir Tavern on North Road in Cardiff forms our race headquarters.
Race dates are as follows:
Wednesdays, May 20th, June 24th and July 22nd 2020
The 2020 Series features the new course introduced last year, as well as further enhancements to timing and recording facilities.
As always, you can enter on the night, (you’ll find entry forms and pens on the tables) or you can enter online, in advance, including payment.
Details of the new course are available on the Course Map page.
