Attrattive

Unhurried Swansea graces the western shore of sheltered Great Oyster Bay, with sweeping views across the water to the peaks of the Freycinet Peninsula. Founded in 1820 as 'Great Swanport', Swansea also delivers some interesting historic buildings and a museum.

The town's revival since the doldrums of the 1980s has paralleled the boom in tourism across the state, though it manages to retain a laid-back holiday vibe. There are plenty of enticements for visitors in and around town, including myriad accommodation options, beaches, restaurants, cafes and some impressive wineries to the north. Swansea gets busy as a beaver (or perhaps a platypus?) in summer, so book ahead.

Panoramica

The JCP Swansea Half Marathon starts in the heart of the city centre, within the first half mile of the race you will pass Swansea Castle still standing from 1106.

From the closed roads you’ll spot the floodlights of St Helen’s Rugby ground. The famous old ground harbouring such famous memories of Sir Garfield Sobers hitting six sixes off a single over in a first class match in 1968 and where Swansea RFC beat Australia in 1992.

You will then enjoy the stunning views of Swansea Bay as you head towards the village of Mumbles and it’s iconic pier and lighthouse – this pretty setting which leads to the Gower Peninsular is a haunt of Catherine Zeta-Jones and was of poet Dylan Thomas.

At mile 6 you will turn and head back towards Swansea via the flat, purpose-built cycle/walkway alongside mile of sandy beaches. On a clear day you can see as far as Illfracombe on the Devon Coast.

The return leg of the race heading towards the Meridian Tower – Wales’ tallest building provides a perfect opportunity for a PB with a flat, fast promenade guiding you towards Swansea Marina where you will run over the lock bridge in to the city’s newly developed SA1 area before you cross the Millennium Bridge spanning the River Tawe and head back towards the finish in the city centre.
