About Us

Llyn Llech Owain parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00am in Llyn Llech Owain, Gorslas, SA14 7NF. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan.

It offers an opportunity for all the local community, male or female, young or old, to come together on a regular basis to enjoy this beautiful park and get physically active into the bargain. We want to encourage people to jog or run together irrespective of their ability – this event is truly open to all and best of all it really is FREE!

Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! Then just set your alarm for Saturday morning and get yourself there!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Caffi ar y Llyn (café) - please come and join us! Maybe swap stories about your run that day, chat to other runners over a cup of tea or coffee and just be an important part of this new running community.

So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join us.

  • TROTS (Taf Running and Orienteering Team): TROTS (Taf Running and Orienteering Team) have been supportive of the Llyn Llech Owain parkrun. Based in St Clears, the club competes in road, multi-terrain and cross country races across West Wales, the UK and around the world. Since forming in the late 1980s, the TROTs membership has grown and now includes more than 70 regular runners from under 16 to over 60! Club members are now more focused on road running, cross country and fell running than orienteering. However, orienteers in West Wales are welcome to boost their fitness by training with the TROTs. You can discover more about them at www.trots.org.uk.

    Your donation could be used for the anniversary event, the annual prize giving, replacing worn equipment or for improving your parkrun.

    For donations prior to 1 Febraury 2017, 85% was allocated to the event and the remaining 15% to the New Event Fund.

    parkrun is completely open about all donations. All donations to this event (and withdrawals that the event teams makes) will be published below. You can also view all donations in this country here
