Cardiff University/ Cardiff Half Marathon

Cardiff University/ Cardiff Half Marathon image

The Cardiff Half Marathon is the perfect challenge for beginners and elite runners.

This beautiful, predominantly flat course takes runners on an unforgettable tour of Wales’ capital city, past historic landmarks and stunning scenery.

Barnardo’s set up Wales’ largest mass participation event in 2003, and is now its official charity partner.

Starting from the historic Cardiff Castle you will head towards the Cardiff City Stadium before running through the Vale of Glamorgan, over the Cardiff Bay Barrage, past the Norwegian Church and Millennium Centre, around the beautiful Roath Park Lake and will finish in the majestic civic centre outside the Temple of Peace on King Edward VII Avenue, where you’ll be given a hero’s welcome and a well-deserved massage!

“It was such an amazing day and great atmosphere! Thank you for all your support from yourself and the rest of your Barnardo’s team! They kept me going through the race!" - Lucy Curtis, Cardiff Half Marathon runner
