The JCP Swansea Half Marathon starts in front of the iconic Brangwyn Hall, before heading through the City Centre onto Oystermouth Road. You will then enjoy the stunning views of Swansea Bay as you pass St Helens Rugby Grounds and head towards the village of Mumbles with it’s iconic pier and lighthouse. This pretty setting which leads to the Gower Peninsular (home to the famous Catherine Zeta-Jones, Dylan Thomas and Bonny Tyler), before you turn and head back towards Swansea via the flat path alongside miles of sandy beaches. On a clear day you can enjoy views across the bay all the way to the Devon Coast.
The return leg of the race heading towards the Meridian Tower – Wales’ tallest building provides a perfect opportunity for a PB with a flat, fast promenade guiding you towards Swansea Marina where you will run over the lock bridge into the city’s SA1 development before you cross the Millennium Bridge spanning the River Tawe and head back towards the finish near Wales’ Oldest Museum.
