The Richard Burton 10k is Back
The race committee have been very busy working away in the background putting in place the arrangements for a full RB10k event this year on Sunday 7th November 2021 starting at 11am. In order to make the event as safe as possible and acknowledging the need to address the still very real threat of Covid-19, we will be making some changes to how the event will be organised this year and these details will be available in the race profile when registering through Full On Sport.
We are currently setting up the Full On Sports entry site and intend opening that for registration this month. The RB10k will open for registration at 7pm on Friday 17/09/2021. The Mini Miler will open at 7pm on Saturday 18/09/2021. The Tata Steel employees Entry form will open at 7pm on Friday 24/09/2021.

2020 saw a very successful virtual event with incredible support from runners as can be witnessed on the Facebook group for this race. We published the 2020 History Page shortly after last year's event and if you wish to see races from past years take a look at the history section on the menu.
As we open the event for entries, we very much intend delivering a physical event for 2021 with all the social interaction that normally goes with this event. However, should this once again not be possible due to changes in the current laws, we will put on an alternative virtual event but our focus is very much on delivering a full physical event.
We still have our main sponsors, Tata Steel and Runtech, Standing by us, alongside all our other sponsors.
The Richard Burton 10k management committee look forward to meeting you all once more in November 2021.

We are so very proud to continue our support of this iconic race. The events of 2020 have demonstrated how much we all need our community and support systems around us. The Tata Steel Richard Burton road race and Kevin Webber Mini-Miler has always pledged its support to community groups, grassroots charities and sports clubs in the Neath and Port Talbot region, and while the race might not look the same as before, the continuation of the virtual event, demonstrates that the committee are as special as the race namesake. Richard Burton was a trailblazer, and staunch advocate for his town, and the commitment from the race organisers that this year's event goes ahead is just what he would have wanted, we think.
All the profit raised by your virtual entry will go back to support those local organisations so badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. They have never needed your support more. Tata Steel are proud to support and look forward to seeing you all on the virtual finish line. Good luck! - Nia Singleton, Community Liaison Manager UK, Tata Steel
