2023 Cardiff Half Marathon

10 months ago Mon 25th Sep 2023

As a result of Principality Cardiff Half Marathon, a significant number of roads will be closed on Sunday 1st October.

This will result in diversions for some services, and most being unable to serve their usual stops within the city centre. The timetables and journey planner on our website and app have been updated to show the diversions and revised bus stops.

Details below outline the diversions in use during the race, but please note due to other event facilities in the city centre requiring road closures, before the race begins routes will be unable to serve upper Westgate Street or Castle Street, so some additional diversions will be in place.

Please note that all times below are approximate and subject to change on the day as the closing and opening of roads is out of our hands. Diversions below include the names of well known roads to keep them as simple as possible to understand, check the timetable pages on our website and app to see which exact stops each route will serve across the city.
