Cardiff Half Marathon

Charity spaces to run for Cancer Research Wales are now full

Runners wanting to run this year’s Principality Cardiff Half Marathon on behalf of Cancer Research Wales have now filled all of the charity’s spaces.

This means there will be a 500 strong team of Cancer Research Wales runners taking to the streets of Cardiff on Sunday 6 October to embark on their fundraising mission.

While all the official spaces are now sold out, those who want to raise money for the charity can still do so with their own place.

Alternatively, people can also join Cancer Research Wales’ reserve list should one of their runners drop out ahead of the event and a space becomes available.

Iwan Rhys Roberts, Communications and Marketing Manager at Cancer Research Wales said: “To have sold 500 places in the Principality Cardiff Half Marathon is a very exciting development for Cancer Research Wales. It’s a clear sign that more people than ever are now choosing to support Cancer Research Wales – the independent Welsh cancer research charity.

“Cancer Research Wales is the only charity wholly dedicated to funding cancer research projects in Wales and all our research funding is spent in Wales. Our work is only possible thanks to the generous support of the public and we’re very grateful to everyone who is going to be running the Cardiff Half Marathon on our behalf in October.”

Matt Newman, Chief Executive at event organiser Run 4 Wales, added: “It’s fantastic to see so many runners wanting to fundraise and raise awareness for Cancer Research Wales.

“We’re delighted to be working with Cancer Research Wales at the Principality Cardiff Half Marathon to help spread the word about the important work that they do and look forward to welcoming all their runners to the Welsh capital on race day.”
