The Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the biggest and best road races in the United Kingdom.

 

With more than 21,000 entrants in 2014, it ranks as the UK’s second-largest half marathon and Wales’ largest mass participation event.

 

It boasts a world class course record time of 61:51 set by Kenya’s Loitarakwai Lengurisi in 2013.

 

The flat and fast course devised by double Olympic marathon runner Steve Brace takes in all of Cardiff’s iconic sights including; Cardiff Castle, the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff City Stadium, Cardiff Bay barrage and the Welsh Government buildings before a stunning city centre finish outside the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

 

After successfully hosting the British Half Marathon Championships for the last two years, the Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon has been awarded the honour of hosting the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in 2016.

 

The 2015 edition of the race is set to attract a selection of the world’s best distance runners as they get a feel for the course in preparation for the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in 2016.

 

As well as the strong elite field, the Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon is a firm favourite among amateur distance runners with more than £2.3m being raised for 800 charities in 2014 alone.
