Whether you’re a couch potato or a seasoned runner, beat your own personal best this year with Blind Veterans UK. Join us for a 5k or 10k chip-timed run and enjoy the last of the Summer sun, while passing the attractions of Cardiff's Bute Park and the banks of the River Taff. Our 5k and 10k runs both start and finish in the heart of Bute Park next to the Education Centre.

Since 1915, Blind Veterans UK has been providing rehabilitation, training, practical advice and and lifelong support to tens of thousands of blind ex-Service men and women, and funds raised from this event will go towards helping blind Veterans rebuild their lives after sight loss.
