Cardiff Half Marathon 2018

A team of 41 runners took part in the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday 7th October for Prostate Cymru. Cardiff Half Marathon is the second largest road race in the UK after the Great North Run. The popular annual 13.1 mile race, which was celebrating its fifteenth year, took the runners from Team Prostate Cymru around the capital including Cardiff Bay and Roath Park. Although it was a bitterly cold start to the day, the runners soon warmed up as they ran the course in the Autumn sunshine.

The Prostate Cymru runners from across Wales took on the challenging event to raise money and awareness for the charity, pledging to raise at least £200. Many runners were taking part to show support for family members, friends and members of the community who have experienced prostate issues such as benign prostate disease and prostate cancer. Some runners had experienced prostate cancer personally and ran to show their appreciation for the charity’s work. The team also included Janine Bowgen who celebrated her 40th birthday by running the half and Dylan Evans who is planning on completing 60 5K events and 60 events over 5K before his 60th birthday!

Our brilliant team completed the Cardiff Half Marathon in impressive times ranging from one hour, forty minutes and forty two seconds to three hours, sixteen minutes and forty one seconds. Prostate Cymru would like to congratulate all members of the team for their participation in the race and for choosing to support the charity. We would also like to thank masseur Ceri Melhuish-Thomas who soothed the aches and pains of our runners pre and post race at our base in City Hall.
