The Peace Run 5K is being held to celebrate the visit of the world's longest relay run - the Oneness-Home Peace Run - to Wales. Runners from all over the world will be taking part, so come and join us for a friendly 5K with a truly international feel at the beautiful National Botanic Garden of Wales, a few miles outside of Carmarthen.

The course starts at Garden Reception and comprises 2 laps of 2.5K - the loop takes in the walled garden, fountains and water features, a lap of the iconic Glasshouse, tranquil lakeside paths and magnificent views across the hills of Carmarthenshire. Held before the garden opens, this race will be on an entirely traffic free route and the only other people in the Gardens will be runners' friends and supporters.

As the course is narrow in places we are limiting entry numbers so sign up soon to guarantee a place! A one-lap 2.5K fun run will be held alongside the 5K and is open to runners aged 9 and up who want to enjoy a run around the gardens without taking part in a timed race. The Fun Run is FREE for all junior runners and any runners wearing flower-themed fancy dress!
