“Here are some who like to run. They run for fun in the hot hot sun” – Dr Seuss
Well, it might not have been in the hot hot sun (although it was still very warm!)\ but March welcomed tens of thousands of runners to Cardiff to take part in the Cardiff Half Marathon.
Sponsored by Cardiff University, the half marathon takes place twice every year. Although I’ve actually taken part in the run before and wasn’t taking part this time, this year was a significant one for me – I collaborated with the race organisers Run 4 Wales, to produce this commemorative drawing.
My special edition print celebrates the iconic Cardiff landmarks found along the route, including Cardiff Castle, the Principality Stadium, the Norwegian Church, Cardiff Bay, Roath Park Lake, Cardiff University and Cardiff City Hall.
It was an absolute pleasure to create this special drawing and it’s been given to many as celebratory gifts, and bought my others as mementos of the effort and preparation required to take part in this kind of race.
Well done to all who took part!
