Cardiff & Vale Marathon

Building on our status as the World’s Favourite Run, we are proud to announce the third event in the Great British Marathon Series – The Cardiff & Vale Marathon.

Planned to take place in Spring 2018, the Cardiff & Vale Marathon will be a welcome addition to the world-class Cardiff Half Marathon and will start and finish in the iconic setting of Cardiff Bay.

In response to a string desire from the running community within Wales and beyond for a quality marathon event, we are working in partnership with Run4Wales, Cardiff Council and Vale of Glamorgan Council to bring you an exceptional and iconic route.

This is an opportunity for runners throughout Wales and beyond to be part of something historic. Cardiff has a wonderful marathon history and we aim to deliver an event that will add to the story.

If you’re a seasoned marathon participant seeking a new and exciting challenge or a runner looking to experience the iconic 26.2 mile distance for the first time, you are in safe hands with The Great Run Company!

Sign up to our reminder service now to be first to hear of the event opening for entries.
