Join #TeamShine at the 21st Cardiff Half Marathon!

The Principality Building Society Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the largest and most exciting road races in the United Kingdom. It's now one of Europe’s largest half marathons and is Wales’ largest mass participation and multi-charity fundraising event.

The event has grown significantly since it was founded in 2003 when 1,500 runners took part. It now attracts a mass race field of over 27,500 registered runners alongside world-class athletes.

Its flat, fast course passes all of the city’s most breathtaking scenery and iconic landmarks including Cardiff Castle, the Principality Stadium, Civic Centre and stunning Cardiff Bay.

Thousands of spectators turn out to cheer on the runners in a city renowned for its sporting passion. Cardiff is a lively capital city offering unique attractions, world-class sports stadiums, vibrant entertainment, waterside eateries and seemingly endless parkland.

The event has sold out every year since 2017, and the 2024 event is expected to sell out in record time! So, don’t miss out! Shine has a limited number of places available – sign up now for a guaranteed place and join #TeamShine!
