Cardiff Route – 1 july 2023
The Baton’s Cardiff journey will commence in Bute Park alongside the celebrated River Taff. It will take a circular route, broadly following the annual half-marathon course through iconic locations across the city; and it will be supported by politicians and councillors, the emergency services, port and maritime authorities, and professionals working in education, mental health, suicide prevention and wellbeing. And, most importantly, many members of the South Wales public.
The Baton route and event locations are all subject to local authority approval, and change.
