Organisers have revealed that Cardiff will not host a marathon in 2017.
Despite earlier suggestions that the Welsh capital and the Vale of Glamorgan would host a full marathon next year, Run4Wales have confirmed that they have decided 'not to rush things' and will instead look at staging the event in 2018.
The Great Run Company and Run4Wales are expected to work alongside Cardiff Council and the Vale of Glamorgan Council to deliver the event.
Inspired by the success of the Cardiff Half Marathon, news that there were plans to establish a full version of the race was met with enthusiasm.
A ‘Stepping Stone’ event is due to take place in Cardiff Bay on the 2nd of April 2016 with the aim of giving runners the chance to experience running in the city.
