Cut off times:
Time limit – We ask runners to be able to keep a pace of 12- 15 min a mile and complete a half marathon in 3 - 3:30hours. If you are running slower than this pace, you will still be able to finish, however, when directed to do so you will need to run on pavements and run as a pedestrian obeying all signals and the highway code. We cannot guarantee volunteer marshals will continue to be on course and therefore it is your responsibility to look at the route and follow the course signs.
Where there are any road closures these will re-open to vehicular traffic on a rolling basis at an approximate pace of 15min mile.
The Run Wales team wish you a successful and enjoyable race.
