Festive 4


The Festive Four is a fun competition to promote running in the Bridgend area over the Festive period, open to all members from running clubs within the 2022 Bridgend County Running League. [Club vests are compulsory at each event]

The competition is based on Tour de France style categories, combining the results of four runs:

TWO 5k runs

These are to be run on December 24th and December 31st.

  • One run to be one of either the Nos Galan 5k or Maesteg or Porthcawl parkruns
  • One run to be any parkrun of your choice, nationwide, and can be Porthcawl / Maesteg again. 

A Boxing Day run

Choose between

  • HiTide (£5 in advance, enter HERE) or
  • Glyn Neath 5 mile (event and entry TBC but have been told it is going ahead)

A New Years Day run

Choose between

  • Prince of Wales 3.7 mile (January 1st, 11am details TBC) or
  • Old Father Time 5 mile (Vets only, January 1st, 1pm £10 entry in advance HERE)

Where there is a choice of events and the distances are not equal the times will be proportioned to even them out.


Yellow Jersey: Fastest aggregate time for Man & Woman over four chosen events.

White Jersey: Fastest aggregate age adjusted time for Man & Woman over four chosen events.

Green Jersey: Best Man and Best Woman with aggregate time as a ratio to Season’s Best 5k time.

Taking part mementos for ALL entrants and prizes will be presented on 14th January 2023 after the Porthcawl parkrun.
