Cardiff Half Marathon

The Cardiff half is mostly a flat and fast course making it ideal for beginners and elites alike, taking them past the most iconic buildings, steeped in history and beautiful Welsh scenery.

Starting outside Cardiff Castle the runners go down towards Cardiff City Stadiums on their way to Penarth and the breathtaking Penarth Marina.

Once across the barrage the runners head to the famous Cardiff Bay, from wasteland to tourist mecca, an area of magical transformation where families from near and far now gather.

The route continues through the heart of the bay taking in the Norwegian Church and Wales Millennium Centre, then heading towards the north of the city where runners will complete a loop of the beautiful Roath Park Lake to a grandstand finish in the heart of the city at the Civic Centre.
