Do something amazing for Tŷ Hafan this October 

The Cardiff University / Cardiff Half Marathon is back on Sunday 7th October 2018 and here at Tŷ Hafan we're really excited.  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.

tŷ hafan running clubs

running club

In 2017 we introduced our Tŷ Hafan running clubs, a series of 8k, 15k and 10k runs on the three Sunday's before the half marathon in Bute Park, Cardiff.  We'll be looking to run these again in the lead up to this years event as they're a great way to meet other runners and train at the same time.  More information about the runs will be released closer to the time.  


supporting you on the day

As with last year, we'll be providing plenty of support on the day including our group selfie outside the Museum, a post race celebration and of course our amazing Tŷ Hafan cheer station located on Albany Road, the loudest cheer station on the course!

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'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.  We will even kit you out with one of our very own, and super stylish, Tŷ Hafan running vests.
