I've started interval sprints in the morning, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I cannot believe I am actually waking up in order to run, I am not a runner, my gait looks like a cross between a Brown bear and a moose.
However, next year I am going to run my first ever half marathon and raise dollars for a charity. Not sure which charity yet, but the goal is to run a half marathon. So I might as well start training now.
Also, interval sprints are fucking insane for cardio. Apparently by doing 3-4km of interval sprints (up hill) with jogging in between, normal jogging is a piece of piss. I wouldn't know, being a fat non runner and never having tried.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

You can build cardio more quickly with intervals than with steady-state running. But if you plan on doing a half, you need to put some miles in. You need the legs, too.

My typical lunch workout is 30'@6mph. I have moved it up to 6.5mph for half an hour on occasion. Once or twice a week I'll do an 8min mile and just last week I did a 7min mile- fairly certain I hadn't done that since high school 12 years ago- then I finish the half hour out at 6mph.

Battlefields, if your goal is to survive 14 km and you are in any sort of shape from training you will probably be fine. My only concern would be knees, I know it took me a long time to build up to where I could run that distance without pain. One of the things the mileage does is strengthen the knees. At one point I would not have thought I could go past 10k, now I've run a couple of marathons.
