Training Run Series

Preparing for the SOLD OUT Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon? Our Training Run Series is back for 2018 and here to help!

We’re putting on three brilliant training runs in 2018 – and you can attend for FREE!

Located around Wales at three locations, each run is just after work and limited to only 200 runners on a first-come-first-served basis. These are suitable for runners of all abilities, with a number of pace groups to choose from.

There’ll be free refreshments and snacks post run as well as a talk from an inspirational runner who’ll be imparting their knowledge and answering your burning questions.

Applications for each event will be released on social media shortly before each event and can be applied for via this web-page. Once places are gone, they’re gone!


11 April – 4 Miles

The 4 Mile Training Run will take place on 11th April, starting and finishing at Cafe Castan in Llandaff Fields, Cardiff. The route will follow the River Taff towards the city-centre then loop back on the opposite side of the river.

Please arrive from 5.45pm, for a 6pm run start.
