The Super Sprint run is a fast and flat out and back route, showing off the sights of Cardiff Bay along the way. Heading out of transition first towards the Norwegian church and along the cycle path, taking in the sites of industrial heritage that Cardiff is so renowned for. You will find your turn around point along the cycle path not far from the Harbour Authority Building, the route back gives you views of the Pierhead Building, the Wales Millenium Centre, the Senedd and so much more that you’ll have plenty to keep you motivated as you go for your PB! Once you get to the Senedd Building its time for your sprint finish; along Bute Place, around the corner and into the finish line in front of the Wales Millenium Centre with a famous Always Aim High welcome.
