We apologise, but wish to bring to your attention that with the race being licensed under Welsh Athletics, the insurance provided by the governing body is not designed to cover runners wishing to enter pushing a buggy or pushed wheelchairs and as such we are unable to permit entry of runners with buggies or pushed wheelchairs, this is also inline with the race regulation (assisted running) stipulated by Welsh Athletics.

Hospice personnel do amazing work in the community and through their organised fundraising events makes it easy and enjoyable to raise money collectively for such a worthwhile cause whilst building it in with effective team building for our staff.
