Ty Hafan

cardiff half marathon

Do something amazing for Tŷ Hafan in 2019

The Cardiff University / Cardiff Half Marathon returns on Sunday 6 October 2019. 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 charity spaces

Details of our charity spaces for 2019 will be released in January.  We usually ask that in return for a free space you aim to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship. To register your interest in one of our charity spaces then please email james.dhale@tyhafan.org Additionally, if you've decided to purchase your space through the organisers and would like to run in support of Tŷ Hafan then we would love to hear from you to support you with your fundraising.  

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 next years event as they're a great way to meet other runners and train at the same time.  

supporting you on the day

We'll be providing plenty of support on the day including our group selfie outside the Tŷ Hafan tent in the event village, a race day cheer squad on Albany Road and post-race pizza back at the tent.

and in the lead up to the race...

There's also the opportunity to visit Tŷ Hafan in the lead up to the event for a tour of the hospice to see how your support is making a difference to life-limited children and their families. 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 and we'll even kit you out with a stylish running vest.
