INSPIRED FEATURED EVENTS
NOVEMBER 4th - TRAIL RUNNING FESTIVAL
4th November Event Details
There are road closures in place for the race start and at Cefn High Street. The terrace outside the museum will host a festival atmosphere with stalls, children’s activities and some very special guests to keep the family entertained whilst supporting the runners at the finish line. This is our first trail festival that we hope to run each year. We aim to put on a excellent race for you whilst raising funds for Velindre Cancer Centre.
Please encourage your friends and family to attend to see what our beautiful town has on offer. The route passes over some very historic sites starting at Cyfarthfa Castle, passing Cefn Coed Viaduct, Pontsarn Viaduct, Cyfarthfa Iron & Steelworks and Pont-Y-Cafnau Bridge
