There are only three weeks left for fitness fans and charity fundraisers to get their entries in for this year’s Admiral Swansea Bay 10k.
Entries for the annual race, which takes place on Sunday September 24, close on Thursday August 31.
Swansea Council is behind the event, which is being sponsored by Admiral for the tenth consecutive year.
As well as the 10k, there are also 1k, 3k and 5k junior fun runs, along with a 10k wheelchair race.
About 4,500 people are expected to take part again this year.
Cllr Robert Francis-Davies, Swansea Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Tourism and Major Projects, said: “With so much beautiful scenery at our beck and call, running is part of the rich culture in Swansea that we’re hoping will propel us to the UK City of Culture 2021 title.
“An exceptionally popular feature of Swansea’s annual events calendar, the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k is a terrific race for elite athletes, charity fundraisers and people looking to tackle their personal bests or conquer personal fitness goals. Set against the scenic backdrop of Swansea Bay on a flat course, this award-winning event also includes junior races for children, which give a great introduction to road-running.
“With entries closing at the end of August, I’d urge anyone interested to enter this year’s event as soon as possible to avoid disappointment because the race always reaches capacity. People who take part are overwhelmingly positive about the experience because of the quality of the race’s organisation and management, and the support they receive from hundreds of people lining the route.”
Earlier this year, the Admiral Swansea Bay 10k was named second best 10k in the UK in The 2017 Running Awards, whilst the Junior Races were named Best Child Friendly Event in the UK.
A mascot race will also be taking place on the day and entries are invited from groups, organisations and companies wishing to win the £100 on offer for their winning mascot.
