Welcome to Prostate Cymru

The Five Valleys Sportive is back for 2024!

Join Prostate Cymru on Sunday 11th August 2024 for the Five Valleys Sportive and ride the valleys to help men in Wales with prostate cancer.

Whether you are part of a club, a cycling enthusiast or just ride for fun, why not sign up for Wales’s premier sportive today?

The history of the Five Valleys Sportive route comes from an event which was started as a road race by the Port Talbot Wheelers in 1958 and grew to become one of the most famous races held in Wales.

The reason for its popularity was because it was an arduous course taking in some of the most historical climbs in South Wales such as the Bwlch and Rhigos mountains. It was the only race in Wales which was given a Star Trophy status – this rating is now called the Premier Calendar.

Starting in Margam Park, Swansea, there are two routes to choose from, the shorter route at 54 miles, or the longer route at 72 miles.

Sign up today here:


All participants will be given a disposable timing chip and access to feed stations along the route, so why not take on the challenge this August.

Early bird entry for the event is just £35, with an optional fundraising element.

If you decide to take part on the day, you can still come down and pay £45 to take part.

We are offering a £20 sign up fee for members of cycle clubs who ride in a group of 10 or more. For more information on how to sign up as a group, please contact [email protected]

Fundraising for this event is not necessary, however we would love for people to try and raise a minimum of £100.

Like all of the money raised by our events, all donations stay in Wales, helping support awareness, research, and treatment for those suffering from prostate health issues. Sign up for the Five Valleys Sportive today and help support Prostate Cymru raise much needed funds to help support men in Wales fighting Prostate cancer.
