On Saturday 26th March 2016 the renowned IAAF/Cardiff University World Half Marathon Championships will arrive in Cardiff, Wales, for what is set to be one of the most prestigious and enthralling UK endurance events of recent years. Run in the same race on the same course as the world’s best athletes and earn your own world championship medal.

The world’s best runners will be descending on Cardiff’s streets next March for what is sure to be a hotly contested IAAF elite race that will offer plenty of excitement and entertainment for spectators and runners alike.

Also open to mass participants, the event is the perfect opportunity for runners of all ages and abilities to run in the footsteps of champions in a World Championship race.

The last time the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships came to the UK was in 2009 when Birmingham hosted the elite competition. 2016’s event is special as it will be the first time in which the UK has also hosted a mass race at the same time as the elites.

With a limited capacity of 25,000 spaces up for grabs in the mass race, demand is high for the chance to run a world-class championship course alongside world-renowned runners.
