The annual race, which was held this year on Sunday September 24, came first in the Welsh heats for the prestigious UK Running Awards.
Online voting has now re-opened and allows those who have already voted a second opportunity to vote again, with the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k among the final 12 races in the running for the UK-wide title.
Swansea Council is behind the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k, which is part of the year-long Enjoy Swansea programme of events and activities.
Head to the 10k voting area of www.therunningawards.co.uk to vote for the Admiral Swansea Bay, which is up against races including the Whitchurch 10k, the Berkshire 10k and the Doncaster 10k on the final shortlist.
Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Major Projects, said: “The Admiral Swansea Bay 10k has been a major success story since being first introduced in 1981, attracting many thousands of people to take part every year.
“Catering for elite athletes, amateur runners, charity fundraisers and many others, the event, set against the glorious backdrop of Swansea Bay, is one of many that re-enforce Swansea’s status as a leading city of sport.
“The Admiral Swansea Bay 10k has been on the shortlist for this major UK-wide accolade twice before, but it’s never won. You can help change that by voting for the event as soon as possible, to help give the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k the recognition it so thoroughly deserves.”
At the 2016 and 2017 UK Running Awards, the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k came second in the best 10k category.
Voting for next year’s awards closes on March 15, with the awards ceremony being held on April 19.
