The Second Parc Margam 10k run raising money for the Mayor of Neath Port Talbot’s Charity Fund is to get under way in the beautiful surroundings of Port Talbot’s Margam Country Park on Sunday, March 12th, 2023.

Entrants can choose between 10k and 5k routes and as well as enjoying the run through the historic park. The run starts and finishes at historic Margam Castle, and will showcase the very best of Margam Park.

Runners will pass alongside three of the park’s lakes before meandering through its woodland trails and past the fields which are home to the famous Margam deer herd.

Entrants will also help raise funds and awareness for the two very worthy causes chosen by Neath Port Talbot Mayor, Cllr Robert Wood’s Charity Fund this year.

Councillor Wood has chosen the National Autistic Society Cymru and Neath Port Talbot Stroke Group to be his two charities during his time as Mayor.
