Two runners die at Cardiff Half-Marathon

The Cardiff Half-Marathon in Wales is one of the largest half-marathons in the UK with approx 20,000 runners taking part. Unfortunately this year, two runners died at the race which was held last  Sunday. The pair, aged 25 and 32, went into cardiac arrest after crossing the finishing line within three minutes of each other, at about 12.25 (GMT).

In response, the organisers said they are "100% satisfied" in their medical plan.... "We had a doctor and medical team at the finish line and were in attendance within seconds of the gentlemen collapsing."
