Nos Galan 2018 FULL!

Registration for the 60th Anniversary Nos Galan Road Races on New Year’s Eve has seen unprecedented demand for race places, with all races now filled.

Thousands of people are expected to converge on Mountain Ash on December 31 for the annual, award-winning event which is known around the world.

There will be 325 competitors in this year’s Elite Race, with over 1,000 more people taking part in the 5K Adult Fun Run and over 350 more(young people) in the various age category childrens’ races.

All race categories are now full.

Organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, in association with the Nos Galan Committee, the annual Nos Galan Road Races take place each New Year’s Eve, in memory of legendary Welsh runner Guto Nyth Bran.

The world-famous event was started in 1958 by race founder Bernard Baldwin MBE, who passed away in 2017, aged 91.

Park and Ride facilities will once again be available on the night but note, there will also be a revised race route this year due to the construction of the multi-million-pound Cross Valley link.
