This year, we’re offering our thousands of spectators the opportunity to get more involved in the race-day action than ever before. With the race growing and the Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon’s elite field improving year on year, we want to give spectators the best chance to watch some of the world’s best athletes take on the iconic route.

Get closer than ever and cheer on your family and friends down the final stretch of their 13.1 mile journey.

We’ve introduced a new spectator zone on Corbett Road, giving spectators a unique opportunity to experience the unrivalled Cardiff Half atmosphere and roaring crowds cheering on the runners as they approach their grandstand finale on King Edward VII Avenue.

Our finish line experience is improving too, with new tiered standing terraces on the sideline, giving more spectators than ever a fantastic view over their loved ones crossing the line.

We’ll have live music and PA throughout King Edward VII Avenue, adding to the vibrancy and atmosphere of the final straight along with big screens so that you can watch the live BBC Wales coverage and immerse yourself into the elite race experience.

Benefit from improved access, more signage and spectator crossing points around the Civic Centre, giving everyone the opportunity to secure their vantage point.

VIP Premium Spectator Access

And finally, our all-new VIP spectator zone highlighted in gold on the 2018 Venue Map. Arrive here from 10:15am to secure the best spot on the route. The first 200 spectators to arrive will enjoy the VIP experience at one of Wales’ biggest sporting events with free exclusive gifts and freebies to help create a rousing reception for our first runners.
