With 25,000 runners expected at this year’s sold-out event, it’s important for us to remind them to run, refuel with our water and then recycle at the clearly signed points.
To put things into context, if every Cardiff Half Marathon runner recycled one plastic water bottle, it would save enough energy to power Cardiff Bay Barrage with electricity for more than two days!
Wales currently boasts the highest recycling rates in the UK at 64%, making us second best in Europe and third best in the world, so join our #RunRefuelRecycle campaign to help Wales become the best recyclers on the planet.
You can also join us on the day of the race at the Save The Mermaids tent to help fight plastic waste. Dive into the tent in the runner’s village to have your face painted, become a mermaid and to find out how recycling your plastic can make a HUGE difference!
