The Red Kite Challenge is an established, annual series of running and walking events with the profits going to support our local hospital.
The 2023 race will again host the Welsh Trail Running Championships (Long) within the Half Marathon race. The U15, U18 & U20 races will also host the Welsh Championships.
Over the course of 18 years, The Red Kite Challenge have donated approximately £20,000 to Bronglais hospital, with last year’s collection going towards their chemotherapy unit appeal.
