ROUTE

CARDIFF UNIVERSITY / CARDIFF HALF MARATHON BOASTS ONE OF THE MOST STUNNING 13.1 MILE COURSES AROUND.

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 8:50am and the rest of the field will start at 9:00am. Check out the interactive route map on the home page to see the Cardiff Half Marathon route in more detail.

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

This map shows the 2015 route, the 2016 route will be announced soon.
