Castle 2 Castle 2022

11 September 2022 - Caerphilly - Cardiff

The annual Velindre Cancer Charity Castle 2 Castle Run, sponsored by Castle Dairies, is an inclusive fun run which takes participants from Caerphilly to Cardiff.

The 2022 event will see a slight change in the annual route, this is due to construction work taking place in Caerphilly Castle and also restrictions to Bute Park imposed by Cardiff Council. After already experiencing a number of postponements and cancellations due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Velindre Charity were passionate about not postponing the event again. Therefore we will be delivering a slightly shorter route at 9.4 miles to allow the event to go ahead and supporters to enjoy this fun run.

The previous two years has been extremely difficult, especially for Charities so your continued support will be hugely appreciated.

Running Order for the Event:

7:00 – 8:00am

Registration will take place at Cwrt Rawlin Primary School, CF83 1SN. Upon registration, participants will collect their running numbers and baggage labels.


Bag drop will close and all bags will be transported to the finish line and stored in a secure area until collected by runners after the race.


Warm up will commence.


The race will begin with participants leaving Caerphilly in three waves which will depart in 5 minute intervals. Runners will be asked to join the most appropriate wave for them, these will be advertised as sub 1.5 hrs, sub 2 hrs and sub 2.5 hrs plus.


All runners will have departed Caerphilly.

Runners will receive a bespoke commemorative finishing medal when crossing the finish line. Further information on refreshments and sports massage opportunities to be confirmed nearer the time.
