Half marathon a “must-do” race, say organisers

Don’t miss out on Swansea, runners urged

JCP Swansea Half Marathon
Sun 23 June 2019


The JCP Swansea Half Marathon has urged would-be participants to make sure they don’t miss the cut-off date to register. Registration for the run closes at midnight on Saturday 18th May.

Organisers say the race on Sunday 23rd June is Wales’ biggest summer half marathon, and places are “flying out the door”.

David Martin-Jewell, director of Front Runner Events, said: “Last week was our biggest number of entries to the JCP Swansea Half Marathon in its history. I think that the television coverage we received in 2018 had a big impact on the entrants nationwide this year.”

The race starts from the iconic Brangwyn Hall at the revised time of 10am, which allows runners travelling from further afield to arrive in plenty of time to take part. The course takes runners through the city centre, offering them the scenery of Swansea Bay and city sights of Swansea Marina, SA1, and the city’s museums.

Almost 6,500 registered runners took part in 2018.
