Places to the JCP Swansea Half Marathon are literally flying out the door as the countdown to close registration begins. With just 1 WEEK until entry to #RunSwansea closes before MIDNIGHT on the 18th MAY, runners are rushing to make sure they don’t miss the cut-off.
The event, which has become well recognised for being Wales’ BIGGEST summer half marathon, takes place on SUNDAY 23rd JUNE 2019. The route promises to be as impressive as ever, with the start line being held at the iconic Brangwyn Hall at the NEW revised time of 10am. Allowing runners travelling from further afield to arrive in plenty of time to take part. The race course takes runners through the city centre, offering them some spectacular scenery of the sweeping Swansea Bay and city highlights of Swansea Marina, SA1, and the city’s Museums.
A well-renowned course for its fast, flat, PB potential, attracts fantastic crowd support, great entertainment on route, and beautiful scenery…it’s no wonder this gem of a race has a string of awards to its name! Along with a field of seasoned athletes, first timers, charity fundraisers and family fun runners, it’s sure to inspire a momentous finish outside Wales’ oldest Museum.
David Martin-Jewell director of Front Runner Events said:
“Last week was our biggest number of entries to the JCP Swansea Half Marathon in it’s history. I think that the television coverage we received in 2018 had a big impact on the entrants nationwide this year. I also believe that the growth is a correlation on the general uptake on people wanting to improve their health wellbeing. It gives me great pleasure knowing that our event is able to act as a catalyst for many wanting to make positive changes in their lives, and provide a platform for some fantastic charity fundraising. We look forward to welcoming all our runners to the sixth edition of the JCP Swansea Half Marathon.”
Almost 6,500 registered runners took part in 2018, of all ages and abilities, along with a good number of family fun runners who were able to take part and follow in the footsteps of their loved ones. The race has firmly established itself as one of the UK’s premier road races, and certainly one that a MUST-do for any runner.
