Cardiff Half Marathon 2023

Your race. Your way.

The Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the largest and most exciting road races in the United Kingdom, promising to deliver the full works for the half marathon. It is now one of Europe’s largest half marathons and is Wales’ largest mass participation and multi-charity fundraising event.

The route will take you past the capital’s iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic buildings. The predominately flat and fast course makes it ideal for beginners and elites.

Got a place already? 

If you are lucky enough to secure your own place, please consider using it to raise money for our charity. There is no fundraising target attached if you have your own place, and you will still get the same support as you would do if running with one of our own places, including a free running vest. If you would like to do so, please register here.

We are always grateful for your support and for any funds you can raise for The Soldiers’ Charity. Why fundraise for us, find out here.

Fundraising support 

The most effective way to fundraise is via the integrated Enthuse online platform. Following registration, you will be guided through the set up of your personalised fundraising page. All eligible donations made this way will automatically add Gift Aid (if a UK taxpayer), therefore increasing each donation by 25%.

We can also provide forms for offline donations and help with additional fundraising ideas. We are here to support you every step of the way.



“I am proud to run for such a worthwhile cause who are there for the Army family, for life.  The support from the Wales Team before the event and on the day was outstanding”. (Paul, 2019 Cardiff Half Marathon Runner)
