Cardiff Half Marathon

Run for Unicef and help keep children safe

Home > Half marathons > Cardiff Half Marathon

The Cardiff Half Marathon is Wales’ biggest running challenge and takes in Cardiff’s most iconic landmarks. It passes the beautiful Penarth Marina before taking runners through the heart of Cardiff Bay. The flat roads make this the perfect race for first-time half marathon runners or experienced runners looking for a personal best.

Why run it for Unicef?

If you’ve secured a place in the Cardiff Half Marathon, your fundraising can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world. Did you know that just £50 in sponsorship could provide enough life-saving peanut paste to bring two malnourished children back to health?
