The JCP Swansea Half Marathon takes place on 26th June 2016 and is set to sell out to a record 8,000 runners. Only in its third year, the event is quickly gaining a reputation as a must-do race and has been shortlisted for the second consecutive year at The Running Awards for the UK’s best half marathon.
Known for being scenic, fast and flat, it is an ideal course for first time runners, charity fundraisers and professional athletes seeking a PB, each year attracting a strong elite field from Wales and beyond.
The second JCP Swansea Half Marathon took place on 14th June 2015 and saw 5,000 runners run through the streets of Swansea #FromTheCityToTheSea. Re-live last year’s half marathon with the JCP Swansea Half Marathon 2015 video, which shows runners leave Swansea city centre on fully closed roads before joining a magnificent six-mile stretch along Swansea Bay.
