The First Minister says he is 'delighted' at news that the World Half Marathon Championships will be hosted in Cardiff in 2016.
This is the latest in a string of major events to be held in Wales, for which we have gained a proud track record for providing a warm Welsh welcome and getting the job done.
We have already built the foundations, with the Cardiff Half Marathon now attracting close to 20,000 entries. I believe this, combined with the presence of the world’s greatest distance runners, provides both Wales and the IAAF with a special opportunity to showcase Wales to the world.
