Bute Park in Cardiff, the stunning 130 acres of landscaped gardens that once formed the grounds of Cardiff Castle, is the venue for this awesome summer running event. With a 5k, 10k, or Half Marathon to choose from, runners of all ages and abilities are welcome to join for a beautiful jaunt around the park.
The course will be run on the park's pathways, which are flat and fast, giving runners the perfect opportunity to snatch up that summer PB, while being treating with the sights and sounds of the Park's summer in full swing.
It will be a lapped course, with the 5k running 1 lap, 10k running 2, and the Half being just over 4 laps.
Along with a final time, runners will also receive split times for each lap so all run-nerds out there can monitor their technical progression.

First race in Cardiff since lockdown. Felt quite small and intimate so not too overwhelming for beginners. Great place to run, safe, away from main roads, lots of greenery. Not entirely sure of the layout, I came up .10 short of a half marathon distance but I guess you have to trust the course markers. It is a bit repetitive, four laps of the same route, but that gives people the chance to cash out early if they find a HM too much. Would do again.
4.3Did the Half Marathon in 2021
This was the first half marathon I have run since 1983 so I was please just to finish - the two outstanding aspects were the beautiful park and the volunteers or stewards who marshalled the run and gave great encouragement to the runners.
5.0Did the Half Marathon in 2021
The event was great and a perfect start back to racing after lockdown! Only minor gripe was that the half marathon course did fall a bit short of the distance so I had to make it up afterwards. Other than that it was a great event and will definitely be back!
4.7Did the Half Marathon in 2021
A friendly, organised event in a lovely area. The only negative was the pedestrians, cyclists, scooters, dogs on the course. I'm not sure how this could be better managed. And the sharp turns were hard but very well marshalled. Thank you and I would definitely compete in another race.
