The Aberystwyth Charity 10k is a fast, flat race following roads and paths around the town that takes runners along the promenade, through the harbour, and around the Rheidol river's edge to finish back at the race registration. At Carl Williams' instigation the race was first held in 1999. Since then it has grown into one of the most popular flat road races in mid-Wales.
The first race was jointly organised between Carl, Aberystwyth Athletic Club and Marie Curie Cancer Care to raise funds for the charity. It was an immediate success so the event continues and in 2001 Macmillan Cancer Support took over Marie Curie Cancer Care's role.
In 2010 the race was adopted by the Cambrian News as part of their 150 year celebrations.
