Pete Morton, our resident PT took place in this years event and achieved an impressive time of 1h:21m:16s, placing him within the top 2% of competitors at position 103 – now of course we are biased but that’s pretty rapid!

Quoted as “one of the best halves around” the Cardiff Half Marathon is a picturesque course which takes runners through the city past some of the city’s most well known landmarks such as the castle, the museum and the bay… but thats not why we love it. The best thing about the Cardiff 1/2 Marathon is that the course if flat and its fast - attracting runners from all over to compete and take part in this event.

The 2009 men’s race was won by 19 year old Simon Lawson, who matched the British under 20s Half Marathon record – Congratulations Simon! The women’s race was won by Genet Measso who completed the course in a staggering 1h:15m:01s.

The race, which is organised by Barnardo’s, one of the UK’s leading children’s charities is now into it’s 8th year and has been growing in popularity since its conception in 2003. You can register up to 15th September 2010 but the race does have an entrance cap and with 12,000 runners anticipated for 2010 it’s probably worth registering early to avoid disappointment.

So what are you waiting for? Why not register for the Cardiff Half Marathon 2010 today? You can even download a FREE Half Marathon Training programme from to help you prepare for the event!
