COVID-19 Update and further Good News
2020 saw a very successful virtual event with incredible support from runners as can be witnessed on the Facebook group for this race. We publish 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.
We very much hope to deliver a physical event for 2021 with all the social interaction that normally goes with this event and are already starting to plan that event. However, should this once again not be possible we will put on an alternative virtual event.
We still have our main sponsors, Tata Steel and Runtech, Standing by us, alongside all our other sponsors.
We are also working on a presentation event for this year and will publish details here once that is finalised.
The Richard Burton 10k management committee look forward to meeting you all once more in November 2021
Coming up much sooner is an event sponsored by RB10k and organised by thrivewomensaid.org.uk
for a sponsored "Walk run or cycle 40 miles in April" to raise money for women's aid.

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
