OCTOBER 2018: CARDIFF HALF MARATHON
On a brisk sunny autumn morning on Sunday 7 October approximately 25,000 runners migrated to Cardiff to take part in the city’s 15th Half Marathon. It’s the UK’s second largest half marathon, and one of those keen amateur athletes was one of QuadConsult Limited’s Project Engineers, Rhys Pugh.
