Cardiff Half Marathon 2019

The Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the largest road races in the United Kingdom.  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.

This year we are offering 75 spaces to celebrate our birthday!  2019 marks, 75 years since the Charity was formed in 1944 to ensure that soldiers returning from the Second World War and campaigns such as D-Day were taken care of.  ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s central purpose has not changed in its 75 years of existence: we exist to honour that debt – to ensure that all soldiers, veterans and their immediate families can live a life of independence and dignity.

We owe a debt to those who served – in the D-Day landings and Normandy campaign, and in all subsequent conflicts – just as we continue to owe a debt to those who serve our country today.  ABF The Soldiers’ Charity stands ready to continue supporting soldiers, veterans and their families for the long haul; and we are ever-grateful for their service.
