Cardiff Half Marathon

Castle Street, Cardiff CF10 3RB

Registration fee: £10 Sponsorship: £300

Run with Team NSPCC in the Welsh Capital


For the second year running, we are the proud official partner of the Cardiff Half Marathon. Join the UK's second largest half marathon and take in some of the most iconic sights around the Welsh Capital. 

The route takes runners past the capital's most iconic landmarks, starting outside Cardiff Castle, running past Cardiff City Stadium, Penarth Marina and the scenic Cardiff Bay before a grandstand finish in the heart of the city at the Civic Centre.

A predominately fast and flat course, this route makes it perfect for beginners or experienced runners all hoping to strive for that personal best.
