Last weekend saw the roads of Cardiff close and over 22,000 runners flock to the capital to take part in the annual Cardiff Half Marathon.

The gruelling race took runners on a 13.1 mile course through the city of Cardiff and its many (many!) suburbs with a number of different Cardiff half records being broken including:

But it wasn't all about records...

The Cardiff Half Marathon gave a number of amateur runners a chance to raise money for their a whole host of chosen causes and charities.

To help do our bit for these amazing fundraisers we produced (in conjunction with SCS Group) branded runners vests for 20 runners completing the race raising funds for local children's charity Noah's Ark. And as you can see they looked great!

My Garment Factory Managing Director John Sheppard added 'We have produced branded clothing for a number of different charities and events the past few years but being a local business we love to support local causes and charities, so when we were approached to produce vests for the runners again we jumped at the chanceThe runners looked great and had fun all while raising funds and awareness for a great cause'. 

The success of the race for both elite athletes and charities alike and a record number of entrants has led to Cardiff having its very own half marathon next year. So we are sure we will be seeing the Noah's Ark team same time next year!

One last thank you...

Just a quick thank you to the team over at SCS Group who also helped make this possible.
