Run Report – 2 October 2023

Under very humid conditions there was a great turnout of BVR runners for the Cardiff Half Marathon. This is a very established race with over 20,000 taking part.

The fast, flat course passes through some of the iconic landmarks in the city including Cardiff Castle, the Principality Stadium, and Cardiff Bay. Then a loop of Roath Park Lake before the finish at the Civic Centre. Steve Cooney reported that “I was aiming for 2 hours or better so having it 7 miles in an hour I was a little disappointed to fall away. I would definitely recommend anyone who hasn’t done it to give the Cardiff Half a bash”.


Cardiff HM results: Steve Cooney 1:56:21, Tim Magor 1:57:34, Caragh Mellitt 2:04:38, Steph Alder 2:19:06, Nicola Huckerby 2:21:29, Emma Hensley 2:23:38, Jackie Wells 2:23:40, Jackie Fitton 2:23:50, Kathryn Carroll 2:26:52, Jill Bishop 2:26:53, David Black 2:37:09, Mary Black 2:37:10, Claire Harrison 2:37:18, Kate Morgan-West 2:37:18, Donna Osborne 2:43:27, Jenny Butterworth 2:54:42, Hayley Giles 2:54:42.



And the week before there was another big turnout for the Teignbridge Trotters Ladies 10k race. This is held out at Ipplepen on the quiet lanes through the hamlets of Denbury and Ogwell, and a final finish with a lap of the Dornafield campsite. The event raised £396 for the Bowel Cancer UK charity.
