Cardiff Half Marathon is a great favourite for Lliswerry Runners club members. From late summer our training programmes & weekly sessions for all our 6 training groups are orientated towards achieving fast times. This year saw record numbers completing the event.
If you'd been on the finish line you would have witnessed many happy smiling faces and realisation of PB's (Personal Bests) for so many members. A combination of ideal weather conditions and the hundreds of family suporters positioned around the course cheering every maroon & white vest made for a "perfect storm" of excellence.
So where do we go from here? For some, Cardiff Half Marathon was just a warm up for Snowdonia Marathon. Others are now thinking ahead to spring 2019. So the coaches plan for re-establishing strength & stamina to be able to build speed in the New Year. Training now includes hill work as well as track intervals and we offer indoor Physical Training sessions to improve core strength. We focus on cross country throughout this period and members are offered free entry into races in two cross country leagues (Gwent league & Gwent Leisure Centre League). There are also three races remaining in our annual Club Championship: The Severn Bridge 5 Night Race, The Howling Bull & any Riverfront parkrun in December.
There's simply no time to put your feet up in this amazing club & we wouldn't want it any other way!
