Course information

The Cardiff route takes a scenic tour around the stunning Bute Park in the heart of the City of Cardiff, following the River Taff into neighbouring Pontcanna Fields. This course allows participants to really explore Pontcanna Fields before returning into Blackweir. Lush grassy, flat terrain and such close proximity to the attractions of Cardiff Centre make this an extremely popular event with a fantastic atmosphere.

Please arrive 15 to 20minis before your start time so that you are prepared and ready to go on time

Please remember to bring your own water bottle already filled as there will be no bottled water provided at events. ScottishPower water refill stations will be available to use.

This year's Race For Life is sharing Cooper’s Field with the event ‘Depot In The Castle’, which takes place in Cardiff Castle on the same day as this event.

We want to provide you with the best possible experience for this event, including getting to and from our event sites.

Depot In The Castle will be entering their event from Castle Mews and North Road, so we are asking Race For Life participants and spectators to please access the park from Castle Street by Pettigrew’s Tea Rooms and Millennium Bridge from Sophia Gardens.

We will be working with Depot In The Castle to provide stewards at park entrances to ensure our participants and spectators arrive and are able to make their way to our event site which is located in the northern section of Cooper’s Field as quickly and safely as possible.
