Cardiff Half Marathon reigns proudly as Wales’ largest road race and the 2nd largest half marathon in Britain.

 

 

 

 

2013 was a record breaking year for the event with over 19,000 running entries and a new course record of 61 minutes 51 seconds set by Kenyan runner Loitarakwai Lengurisi.

 

The sun shone proudly on the Welsh capital as runners were taken on an inspiring journey around the city showcasing its key landmarks. The 13.1 mile course is renowned for being flat and fast and supported by over 43,000 spectators who come out to cheer the runners to glory.

.

For the first time ever the race also formed part of the British Grand Prix Series and hosted the British Half Marathon Championships. There were some great PBs from Britain’s leading runners with Nick Torry (Serpentine) taking the British Half Marathon title in 64min 23sec. Ben Levsey took silver in 63:38 and Swansea’s Dewi Griffiths won bronze and the Welsh title in 65:01.
