Cardiff Half Marathon 2017


5th May 2017

The 2017 Cardiff Half is set to become the biggest running event in Welsh history. The Cardiff City FC Foundation is offering you the chance to be a part of history, FREE of charge.


With limited free entry spaces, runners can save £39 on entry fee’s, a healthy saving on what promises to be a fantastic event.


The route takes runners past the capital’s most iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic buildings. The predominantly flat and fast course makes it ideal for beginners and elites.




You can register for a free charity space by pledging to raise a minimum of £200 in sponsorship. To secure a space please email declaring your interest.


Runners representing the Foundation will receive:

  • Foundation running vest
  • Training plan
  • FREE entry
  • High quality medal to commemorate your achievement
  • Commemorative technical Brooks T-shirt
  • Access to the event facilities
  • Water and sports drink available along route
  • Opportunity to win cash and voucher prizes
  • A text post-event with your race time
  • A post race goody bag


The money raised will be used to help Cardiff City FC Foundation improve the outcomes for young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) by supporting the delivery of interventions to address the problem. Cardiff has the highest percentage of young people not in education, employment or training out of any local authority in Wales. Furthermore, the majority of young people who do not make a successful transition into education, employment or training live in the more deprived areas of the city.
