Cardiff Half Marathon

Family Fun Run & Toddler Dash Entry Options

Festival of Running activity (including the Family Run Run and Toddler Dash) on Saturday 2 October 2021 will also need to be postponed, until Saturday 26 March 2022.

If you had an entry in any of the Festival of Running races it has been automatically transferred to the new March 2022 date and you do not need to take any further action or re-register.

There are also some additional options available which are detailed below. Some of the options include a deadline, so please choose your preference as soon as possible to avoid missing out.


1) A free transfer to the rescheduled event on 26 March 2022

Your entry has been transferred automatically so you do not need to re-register. We will keep you updated with details on the re-scheduled event as it draws closer including timings and location.


2) Claim a credit note voucher, redeemable against any future R4W event purchase

If you would not like to attend the rescheduled event, you can claim the amount you paid for your entry as a digital voucher, redeemable against any future Run 4 Wales event purchase. If the event you register for in future costs less than your Festival of Running entry, you will retain the additional un-used value for another future purchase on your voucher.

Run 4 Wales organise the Cardiff Half Marathon, Newport Wales Marathon & 10K, Cardiff Bay Run, Porthcawl 10K, Barry Island 10K plus a series of virtual events – and credit notes can be used against any of these.

If you would like to take up this option, you must follow the instructions below to request a credit note voucher by 16 August 2021. There is no time limit on using the voucher.

3) Transfer your space to another runner and receive your entry fee back
