All participants are welcome to stay in the Gardens for the rest of the day after completion of the event, so you can make it a day of it! The Gardens will have different activities happening around the site on the day, so be sure to check it out.

If you'd like to bring along family and friends to watch you run, they can receive a half price voucher for access to the Gardens for the day! 

While there's no required fundraising for this event, we'd like to encourage all our participants to consider going that extra mile - no matter how much you raise, even just £20 could help to make a difference to someone living with cancer.

About the route

All routes will remain within the boundaries of the National Botanic Gardens and will see you explore some of the natural beauty of Carmarthen, through meadows, woodlands and even waterfalls! 

This is a mixed terrain route, with some inclines. Routes are on pathways, including tarmac, gravel and some dirt tracks. As this route does go though natural woodlands, there may be leaves and mud on the path - please do take care on the route.

Unfortunately, dogs are unable to join this event as the Gardens only allow dogs on specific dates. Service dogs are welcome to join however.
