On the 1st October 2017, two members of the Microcomms team, Simon Murley and Reni Pengelly, are taking part in one of the UK's biggest and best road races - The Cardiff Half Marathon. The route takes runners past the capital’s most iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic buildings.

The race starts outside Cardiff Castle and runners then head down past Cardiff City Stadium on the way to Penarth. They take in the glorious Penarth Marina before crossing the barrage and heading to Cardiff Bay. Runners run right through the heart of the bay taking in the Norwegian Church and Wales Millennium Centre.

The course then heads towards the north of the city and runners will complete a loop of the beautiful Roath Park Lake before the grandstand finish in the heart of the city at the Civic Centre.

We are running in support of St Petroc's Society - a fantastic Cornish Charity who provide support for the single homeless. Often they are sleeping rough and may have a range of difficulties including addiction, mental ill health, relationship problems or a differing lifestyle, which contribute to their homelessness and social exclusion. St Petroc's exists to provide a diverse range of services for these particular clients.
