Cardiff Taff Trail Half Marathon 2018

Dear Runners,

Unfortunately, we've had to make the decision to postpone tomorrow's Cardiff Taff Trail Half Marathon due to the ongoing weather warning and forecast. We are looking for a new date, we will endeavor to publish a provisional date tomorrow, we just need to check for fixture clashes.

This was a difficult decision and while we’d like to hold out until 6am and see what the status is, we understand you need to make plans etc., so given the continued Amber Weather Warning, the overnight forecast for snow, freezing temperatures and a real feel of -11°C, we have had to make a decision based on the health and wellbeing of the runners and volunteers.

Thank you to everyone who has shown their interest in the event, once we have confirmed a new date and published, we will automatically transfer all the entries to the new date.  If you are unable to make the new date we will allow transfers to other runners for the event, or the option to transfer your entry to one of our other events.

Many thanks for bearing with us today and hope to see you all soon.
