Join Team Royal Voluntary Service in 2021 as we take on the Cardiff Half Marathon.

The Cardiff Half Marathon is Wales' largest running event, with fantastic crowd support on race day. The route takes you past some of Wales’s most iconic landmarks from Cardiff Castle, Millennium Stadium, Welsh Assembly and Cardiff Bay. The mainly fast and flat route makes it ideal for both beginners and those aiming for a PB.

Our guaranteed charity places are now sold out.
