Registration for this year’s Nos Galan Road Races only opened at 10am on Tuesday, September 5, but in a record-breaking few days, the Elite Race and 5K Adult Fun Run were FULL – four months before the event takes place.
Thousands of people will also pack onto the streets to cheer on the runners, of all ages and abilities and to catch a glimpse of the Nos Galan Mystery Runner.
The Nos Galan Road Races are organised annually by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and the Nos Galan Committee.
The UK Running Awards is an annual ceremony celebrating the best of running and its culture around the country – from best fun runs and running events and marathons to best running shoes and the most innovative running apps.

Cllr Ann Crimmings, Cabinet Member for Environment and Leisure, and also Chair of the Nos Galan Committee, said:
“The Nos Galan Road Races are as popular today as ever before, and this has been highlighted with all Elite and Adult Fun Run places being snapped up in record time.
“It is once again a huge honour for our event to be shortlisted as one of the Best Fun Runs in the UK – please show us your support by voting for us.
“These prestigious awards celebrate the cream of the running industry in the UK – and the Nos Galan Road Races is firmly established as a major family event, which attracts participants and spectators from all around the world.
“To win the UK Running Award in 2014 was amazing for all the organisers associated with the Nos Galan Road Races. To win it again in 2018 would be a fitting tribute to our race founder Bernard Baldwin MBE, who sadly passed away on January 3 this year.
“Let’s make the Nos Galan Road Races the official Best Fun Run in Britain!”
