The LM10K was set up to honour

David Synan

Llantwit Major 10k was set up to honour the late David Synan’s love of running. The first trail event of August 2015 was such a success, the committee and volunteers decided to make this an annual event.


The important stuff:

The 10K race itself is open to 16+ (due to conforming to Welsh Athletics guidance and licence, the nature of the route & duty of care), the 5K is open to adults and 11+ (which is in line with guidance), and the 1K is mainly for under 11s (but obviously grown-ups can run with the youngsters). 

  • We have also assessed all risks thoroughly, and have a health and safety procedure
  • Our age restrictions have been carefully considered and are strictly enforced, due to our coastal route/s and duty of care – this may go beyond what similar events allow and beyond guidance
  • We have a professional road closure in operation during the race, we also have coastguards and first aiders on hand to support us
  • Our payment and registration providers SportzMad provide a secure method of entering this event

5K: 10am* £8

10K: 10:45am* £16/£18

1K 12:30pm* £2

*may be subject to change (but these are the planned start times)

All 5K & 1K runners receive a medal
