Walking Event:Poppy Run at Bute Park and Arboretum

Walking Event, Sat 23 Oct 2021

North Road,
CF10 3DX



The Royal British Legion is encouraging people to lace up their trainers and take part in its annual Poppy Run event on 23rd October 2021 to help support service and ex-service personnel and their families.

The Royal British Legion's Poppy Run events are taking place in ten cities across the country, including Bute Park, Cardiff. The event is a 5K run and participants can choose to run, jog or walk. The event is open to all ages and abilities, including four legged friends.

The Cardiff Poppy Run is £15 to enter and under 18's go free. Entry includes a Poppy Run t-shirt and a special finisher's medal. (On the day volunteering opportunities are also available for the live Poppy Run).

Alternatively, there is a virtual version, My Poppy Run during October/November, where people can show their support for the 2021 Poppy Appeal.

The My Poppy Run is free to enter, and t-shirts/medals can be purchased separately. Participants can choose to run, jog or walk a distance of their choice any time during October and November and get family, friends and pets involved too.

Whether runners choose to do the live Poppy Run or the virtual My Poppy Run, they will be helping to transform and support the lives of many in our Armed Forces Community, raising vital funds to ensure that those who have served are offered the life changing support they need and deserve.

The live Poppy Run, or virtual My Poppy Run is a fantastic way for people to show their support for the Royal British Legion and have some fun with family and friends at the same time.
