Cardiff Half Marathon 2009 – only 8 weeks to go!

Cardiff Half Marathon 09 is set to take place on 18th October 2009 at 9am and the route has now been finalised. With just 8 weeks of training time left – it’s time to get cracking!


The race starts at King Edward VII Avenue near City Hall, then heads towards Cardiff Castle. Participants run through Cardiff via Wales Millennium Centre, the barrage, Tracy Island, Cardiff Bay, the Wetlands and Taff Embankment, Llandaff Fields and Bute Park, before finishing back at the Castle.

The 1/2 marathon, organised by Barnardos Cymru, celebrates its 7th anniversary this year and is one of Wales’ most popular Half Marathons with last year seeing nearly 8,000 runners participate.

Yvonne Rodgers, Barnardo’s Cymru Director, says:

‘Runners take on a big challenge when they enter this event, so watching them cross the finish line as they achieve their goal is incredibly uplifting. We’ll be there on the day to cheer the runners on and say a big thankyou for supporting us.’
