Cosmeston Relay Race

Wednesday 6th July 2022, 7pm

This year we have an incredible 19 teams with 57 runners taking part.

Now in its 29th year, the Cosmeston Relay Race is a hugely popular 3 mile, chip-timed, baton relay race in the picturesque Cosmeston Lakes Country Park.

Cosmeston Lakes Country Park is one of the finest country parks in South Wales and is a designated local nature reserve. It offers some scenic running, with views of the lake to start, open countryside and a shaded wooded section.

Each runner completes 1 circuit of the 3 mile (approx.) undulating course in teams of either 3 runners.  There are 11 team categories with plenty of healthy competition – and chances to win prizes for both athletic club and all-comers teams.

A record capacity field of 250 teams have entered in recent years – and the race often sells out in 15 minutes!
