Cardiff Half Marathon


Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon are asking runners “how do you train?” With just 5 months to go until the big day, people up and down the country are pushing their training schedules up a gear to make sure they are fit and ready for Sunday 5th October.

Throughout May, Lloyds Bank  Cardiff Half Marathon are releasing short videos showcasing people from different walks of life training for the event in their own unique way.

Marketing Manager Annabelle Mason said, “we always hear interesting stories about how people are incorporating their training for the Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon into their day-to-day lives, so we thought we would celebrate with this fun video campaign and competition.”

As well as releasing our own videos, we are encouraging runners to share with us their innovative training techniques via video. It’s a bit of fun and the feedback has been brilliant so far.

The person who submits the  best story or video will win the ultimate Welsh running experience – free running spaces in the Lloyds Bank Cardiff half Marathon, accommodation over race weekend and lots of training goodies.” For full competition details, just click HERE

Daniel Thrift, a 24-year-old cardiac physiologist from Cardiff happily shared his training regime for this year’s race.

“This year I am determined to achieve a PB at the Cardiff Half, and every lunchtime at work I now sprint, rather than walk, to and from my favourite sandwich shop. At 1pm those trainers go on and I challenge myself to get there as quickly as possible. I have already knocked 12 seconds off my time!

My colleagues thought I was crazy at first, but now they love it and are even taking bets to predict my fastest time of the week!”
