Anticipation for Wales’ largest mass participation race is at an all-time high as it celebrates its 15th birthday. The event has grown from accommodating just under 1,500 runners in 2003 to last year’s total of 27,500 across a festival weekend of running and events. The 2018 edition will see athletes from across the globe pound the streets of the Welsh capital as the Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon hosts the first-ever Commonwealth Half Marathon Championships.

The race totally sold out back in April and the field of up to 25,000 amateur runners now have no excuse not to be fully fit with the help of Lucozade Sport.
