Cardiff Half Marathon

Boost your fundraising power with a Wizz Air Cardiff Half Marathon Charity Package

Raising money for charity is at the heart of the Wizz Air Cardiff Half Marathon, with thousands of runners taking part and fundraising for a diverse range of local, national and international charitable causes.

It remains Wales’ largest fundraising event, with funds raised each year in excess of £3million. Its flat, fast and iconic course proves attractive to record-chasing elite athletes as well as individuals looking to run in the footsteps of champions. The 2020 race (rescheduled to 2022 because of the pandemic) sold out in January; giving nine clear months when only charity spaces were available. The 2018 and 2019 races sold out in April.

It’s a fantastic fundraising platform with 30% currently running for a good cause raising £412 on average via JustGiving.

The Wizz Air Cardiff Half Marathon will take place on Sunday 2 October in 2022, once again attracting 27,500 runners to the Welsh capital – 51% running the race for the first time.

Our charity packages come with a range of benefits and promotions to help your charity raise as much as possible. Our partnership with JustGiving helps to maximise overall charity fundraising, sees JustGiving technology integrated into the online race entry platform and JustGiving resources used to help charities identify key messages and timings to incentivise fundraisers to both create their donation pages and to engage with their sponsors, and also with their range of analysis tools allow charities to monitor their fundraising activity during the run-up to the event.
