The Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the largest road races in the United Kingdom. The event is not only the UK’s second largest half marathon, it is Wales’ largest road race and Wales’ largest multi-charity fundraising event.

Thousands of runners raise money for charity by getting sponsored, with £3 million raised for 800 charities in 2018.

The route takes runners past the capital’s most iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic buildings. The predominately flat and fast course makes it ideal for beginners and elites.

The race starts outside Cardiff Castle and runners then head down past Cardiff City Stadium on the way to Penarth. They take in the glorious Penarth Marina before crossing the barrage and heading to Cardiff Bay. Runners run right through the heart of the bay taking in the Norwegian Church and Wales Millennium Centre.

The course then heads towards the north of the city and runners will complete a loop of the beautiful Roath Park Lake before the grandstand finish in the heart of the city at the Civic Centre.

The wheelchair race will start at 9:50am and the rest of the field will start at 10:00am.

The course will be policed and marshalled throughout. Race day facilities may be subject to change.
