Mark Ley took part and completed the Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday 6th October 2013 in a time of 2:16 raising funds and awareness for Alpha-1
Mark said “My dear friend Sioned Lewis is suffering with this condition and I am looking to help as much as possible raising awareness and money” Sioned underwent a lung transplant the end of August and is now doing well and recovering at home.
The Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon boasts one of the most stunning 13.1 mile courses around. The route takes runners past the capital’s most iconic landmarks with beautiful scenery and historic building. The predominately flat and fast course makes it ideal for beginners and professionals alike.
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.
A big thank you to Mark and all who supported him raising funds for Alpha-1 it is very much appreciated.
