The St David's Day Run was first organised in 2003 by Mr Huw Lewis MBE and has gone from strength to strength over the years, raising lots of money for charity.
This year's race takes place on Sunday 5th March around Bute Park, Cardiff and you can expect to see some fantastic costumes from those taking part.
In celebration of St. David's Day, Caerphilly Castle will be opening its doors free of charge to the public on the day.
Also be sure to look out for the street theatre acts that will be handing out Welsh flags to passers-by in Bargoed, Blackwood, Caerphilly, Risca and Ystrad Mynach town centres between 11am and 3pm.
Many Welsh castles and heritage sites open their doors free of charge on St David's Day to celebrate.
