Race places are always in great demand, with all race categories full to capacity well in advance of race night.

The message is simple – register now to take part, to avoid any disappointment later on.

Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and the Nos Galan Committee opened online registration for this year’s Nos Galan Road Races at 10am on Tuesday, September 6.

The Nos Galan Road Races are held each year in memory of legendary Welsh runner Guto Nyth Bran. It attracts thousands of athletes of all ages and abilities from around the globe.

Each year a celebrity Mystery Runner represents the spirit of Guto Nyth Bran. Last year’s Nos Galan Mystery Runner was Colin Jackson CBE.

Last year, due to the overwhelming demand once again, there was NO race registration on the day.

The annual event on Saturday,, December 31, is organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and the Nos Galan Committee.

The fun starts in the town centre at 4pm with the first of the children’s races. There will also be an elite race and the adult 5k fun run. Other attractions will include a spectacular fireworks display.
