Runners hoping to take advantage of reduced entry prices for this year’s Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon have been urged to register before early bird entry closes at midnight on Tuesday 31st January.
The 2016 race sold out in just six months and attracted a record 22,000 runners, but interest in the 2017 race has been higher than ever – with organisers expecting 24,000 runners at the iconic Cardiff Castle start line on Sunday 1st October.
The Cardiff Half has grown in stature over recent years not only as a major competitive athletics event but also as a community occasion for Wales.
The race is now the UK’s 2nd largest half marathon – popular for its flat and fast course which as well as passing all of Cardiff’s iconic sights and landmarks, is suitable for beginners and elites alike.
If you haven’t taken part before, you can expect an unbeatable event experience – with 15 live bands performing around the route, a finishers t-shirt and medal really worth running 13.1 miles for and the unrivalled support of the Welsh capital crowds, who line the course in their thousands.
Entry for the event starts from £29, with the early bird discount available to all those who sign up before 31st January.
The entry fee includes a technical finishers t-shirt, commemorative medal, post-race goody bag and access to a professional time chipping service.
