Councillor Phil Bale, Leader

“I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our visitors and to cheer on all the runners from Cardiff and around the world who will take part in the IAAF/Cardiff University World Half Marathon Championships. Cardiff is a small and friendly city which always looks to punch above its weight. Our vision for Cardiff is to create Europe’s most liveable capital city and our ambitions were boosted in 2014 when Cardiff was voted the UK City with the highest quality of life. I hope you get a chance to spend some time here to enjoy what the city has to offer. I wish you all the very best on the day and I look forward to welcoming all our visitors back – perhaps for the UEFA Champions League Final in June 2017 or the Volvo Round The World Ocean Race in 2018.”
