Please note, that this event is now sold out! if you've secured your entry then we would love for you to join team Tŷ hafan and help make a short life a full life.  Please continue reading for more details.

supporting you on the day

  • The day will begin with a group selfie on the steps of the National Museum Cardiff at 9:15am.  Remember to wear your Tŷ Hafan running vest!
  • During the run our cheer station will be located outside the Tŷ Hafan shop on Albany Road and provides the perfect spot for your family and friends to cheer you on.  We will have live music, sweets, and loads of noise! 
  • Once you've finished the 13.1 mile course then share your stories with other Tŷ Hafan runners at the homely 29 Park Place for a drink and a much needed bite to eat.  This will be our official meeting point after the run.
  • What better way to finish off the day than with a 15 minute massage from the wonderful team at Agile Therapy - they will be on hand at 29 Park Place to help you recover. Tŷ Hafan runners have priority so speak to them as soon as you arrive.

and in the lead up to the race...

There is also the opportunity to visit Tŷ Hafan in the lead up to the event for a tour of the hospice to see how the funds you raise are put to use.  Whatever your fundraising target, we will 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.  We will even kit you out with one of our very own, and super stylish, Tŷ Hafan running vests.
