Local Races

Local races aren’t just for local people…. 

There are a number of lovely races that we are fortunate to have on our doorstep. From road to trail, hills to flat. You’re spoilt rotten!!!

The Rabbit Run (formerly known as Merthyr Mawr Trail Running Festival)

It’s back for a 3rd year, earlier than usual and looking for finer weather (well it can’t get any worse than the previous two years!). This usually has good Strider attendance and is organised by local runners with amazing support. Don’t take our word for it, have a look here: MMTRF


Merthyr Mawr Lane 5K

There seems to be a Merthyr Mawr theme here. We’re not in cahoots, honest! If you fancy yourself racing against some of the fastest runners Wales has to offer, followed by a swift half, then get yourself down here! It’s a fast course and a Welsh Champs qualifier. Not part of the BCRL races this year but still bound to be a great event. Find out about it here: MM5K


Merthyr Mawr Pudding Race

Hmm… more Merthyr Mawr. Maybe we just can’t get enough of sand dunes around here? Head over to our dedicated page in the results section to find out more about this Christmas themed run organised by Brackla Harriers.  MMPR
