The Cardiff Half Marathon has grown into one of the largest road races in the UK. Starting off in 2003, the event sees people from all over the world coming to take part and to date has raised more than £2.3 million for over 800 charities and good causes.
The race starts outside Cardiff Castle and runners then head down past Cardiff City Stadium, taking in the glorious Penarth Marina before crossing the barrage and heading to Cardiff Bay.
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.
The Run 4 Wales live tracking app allows your loved ones to keep tabs on your progress as well as keep up to date on all the latest race info.
The Cardiff University Festival of Running kicks off Saturday morning with a full day of fun activities, entertainment and runs for all ages and abilities. Bring the whole family along!
There's plenty to see and do while you're in Cardiff - plan a visit to Cardiff Castle, explore Cardiff Bay, see a show at the Wales Millennium Centre or chill out in Roath Park.
For the more adventurous souls, why not make a splash at the Cardiff International White Water Centre, the first of its kind in the UK.
