Race Arches UK Plays Part In Cardiff Half Marathon

- Nov 02, 2017-


25,000 runners ran underneath the Giant Archway manufactured by a Cross Hands business last weekend.

Race Arches UK, who regularly supply huge massive inflatable race arches and gantries for all different types of races and events all over the UK and Europe, provided the equipment for Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday, October 1.

Founder of Race Arches UK, Polly Powell, was delighted to have been asked to produce the arch for the famous Welsh event.

Polly said: “Our mission, at Race Arches UK is to make sure every race have an awesome start or finish line and we did just that at the Cardiff Half Marathon this year.

"The size requested by Run 4 Wales was larger than our average arch, which varies between 6 and 8m, this one was towering at 5.5m tall and 11m wide.

“I also ran the race this year for the first time and the start line was really electric and the sheer size of the arch for this size event was perfect.

"They had record numbers of entrants this year at 25,000 and it was a sell out, so to be part of the 2017 event was really magical for us.”
