RUN FOR CHARITY

Charity is at the heart of the Cardiff University/Cardiff Half Marathon – where many will be raising money for fantastic good causes. Knowing your run has helped others gives a huge boost to the satisfaction you’ll feel on finishing the race – and keep you motivated during your training. Whilst it’s too late to join the race via an official charity, you can still join a fundraising team if you already have your own space in the race!

We encourage runners to fundraise for our Lead Charity Partner the NSPCC, or one of our Associate Charity Partners – but it’s up to you!

#TeamNSPCC runners will receive a personalised training plan, training day with expert coaches, a Facebook community to share training tips and experiences with and post-race reception!

Cancer Research UK, Mind, Macmillan Cancer Support and Cardiff & Vale Health Charity are Associate Charity Partners of the event, all representing fantastic causes with great offers and benefits available to runners pledging to run for them!
