Why run it?

Since it was founded in 2003, the Cardiff Half Marathon has established itself as one of the UK’s leading road races and one of the biggest events in Europe. The route takes in all of the city’s most iconic landmarks including Cardiff Bay, the Civic Centre and Cardiff Castle, plus a series of Junior Races across the weekend give runners of all ages and ability a chance to get in on the action.

How to get a place

You can either run with realbuzz for one of our charity partners (with some incredible causes to choose from) or purchase your entry package and choose your own charity to run for. 

For each option, you'll need to pay a refundable holding deposit for your place and in each case you're 100% guaranteed your place as long as you reach your fundraising target. All packages include exclusive training support and fundraising guidance too.

How do I raise money?

The first thing you need to do is to set up a fundraising page.

Once you have setup your page, then you need to tell everyone you know about it and share your story. Use social media channels, groups you may be part of and spread the word.

With the support of your charity, you'll easily be able to fit your fundraising around your training efforts, and you'll have so much fun along the way. On you'll find hundreds of fundraising ideas that will help you get to that fundraising target in no time at all.
