Cardiff and Vale College is the new title sponsor of the Cardiff Bay Run, which will take place on a stunning 10km route around the Bay’s most iconic landmarks. A 2km Family Fun Run will kick off the proceedings – allowing runners of all ages to take part.

Also joining the run will be Team CAVC – 50 members of staff who have decided to brave the route themselves. Staff and students from Cardiff and Vale College will also be volunteering on the day, so watch out for them!

Mike James, Chief Executive of the Cardiff and Vale College Group, said:

“We’re delighted to support Run 4 Wales in bringing this exciting event to the region. As the largest College in the Cardiff Capital Region we have over 30,000 young people and adults from across Cardiff, the Vale and beyond learning with us each year. Sport, health and wellbeing are increasingly important themes for us.

“Last year we moved our home for CAVC Sport to Cardiff International Sports Campus [formerly stadium], in Leckwith. We share this facility with partners including House of Sport and bodies such as Welsh Athletics. This sees our staff and students learning in the same place that professional athletes and sportspeople are training.

“Each year we have hundreds of students learning, gaining qualifications and developing their careers in all aspects of sport. Through our popular sports academies, we also ensure our students have access to the best sports facilities, coaching and opportunities to develop their passions and sometimes careers as professional sports people, alongside studying for A Levels or career focused courses. We also encourage all staff and students to participate in sport or activities that can support their wellbeing.

“The exciting new event is a wonderful opportunity for us to support our community – with many of our students and staff running or gaining a brilliant experience from volunteering on the day.”
