Do something amazing for Tŷ Hafan in 2020

The Cardiff University / Cardiff Half Marathon returns on Sunday 4 October 2020. From its inception in 2003, the event has grown into one of the largest road races in the United Kingdom and encompasses many of Cardiff’s most iconic landmarks. 

free charity spaces

We're stepping up our involvement with this fantastic event by taking 100 charity places for 2020 which are available now! Our free spaces are being offered in return for raising £300 in sponsorship and we'll provide you with lots of support in the lead up to and on the day of the event! Including free pizza as standard :)


supporting you on the day

We'll be providing plenty of support on the day including our group selfie outside the Tŷ Hafan tent in the event village, a race day cheer squad on Albany Road and post-race pizza back at the tent.  

and in the lead up to the race...

There's also the opportunity to visit Tŷ Hafan in the lead up to the event for a tour of the hospice to see how your support is making a difference to life-limited children and their families. Whatever your fundraising target, we'll help you reach it with a dedicated support team sending out regular communications in the lead up to the event along with hints and tips on fundraising and we'll even kit you out with a free running vest. 


Don't forget to set up your JustGiving page to get your fundraising up and running
