About the Run

The St David's Day Run was first organised in 2003 by Mr Huw Lewis MBE. The event highlights and celebrates the Welsh National Holiday that is St David's Day and raises vital funds for charities. Over the years the event has gone from strength to strength and raised thousands. It has become part of the calendar of events for The Motivation and Learning Trust the young person's charity. As the run takes place on the weekend closest to St David's Day it always attracts some fantastic costumes and takes in some spectacular views of the capital whilst running around Bute Park. The St David's Day Run has always been a family day out offering a 1K, 5K and 10K race.
