Two Target Ovarian Cancer fundraisers running and waving

Cardiff Half Marathon: March

Since it was founded in 2003, the Cardiff University Cardiff Half Marathon has established itself as one of the UK’s leading road races.

With over 27,500 runners this is now one of the biggest events in Europe – a huge achievement considering only 1,500 runners took part in the inaugural event. Runners will take on a course that passes the Principality Stadium, Cardiff Bay, the Civic Centre and Cardiff Castle.

Alongside the race itself is a weekend’s worth of fun, with a Festival of Running on the day before the event offering a series of fun runs in fancy dress.

How to join Team Target

Places in this event have now sold out but entries are open for the 19th edition of the Cardiff Half Marathon, taking place on Sunday 2 October 2022.
