Half Marathon

This event starts on the main spine road through Pontcanna Fields, just down from the changing rooms. You will run down past Sofia Gardens and through the car park down towards Castle Street, just before the gates you will turn left and along the diagonal path. When you reach the river path turn left, then turn right and over the Millennium Bridge, straight off the bridge and towards the Nursery (opposite way to parkrun), keeping the river on your left. Carry on past Blackweir Bridge and past the start/finish for parkrun, continue following the river path up through Hailey Park, stick to the tarmac path and go past the car park, go through the gates and carry straight on under the railway bridge, follow the cycle path. When you get to the “pump wheel” bear left following the cycle path through the houses, before the end of the path bear left on to the dirt path and then out on to the road ~ watch the kerb here. Pass Cardiff High School Old Boys’ rugby club and continue up past Radyr bridge ~ the river should still be on your left. When you get to the end turn left and go under the M4, at Iron Bridge bear right and follow lane towards Tongwynlais, don’t turn left under A470, continue straight on and pick up the dirt path, at this point beware of the gate. Follow this path until you get back to the river path by the M4, turn left and pass under the M4 once again, you should fully retrace your steps back to the finish.
