The Cardiff University / Cardiff Half Marathon is back on Sunday 1st October 2017 and here at Tŷ Hafan we're super 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.
We have now started to assemble our team for this year’s event and we would absolutely love for you to fundraise for us! We will support you every step of the way and our Tŷ Hafan running clubs, which are new for 2017, will take place on the three Sundays before the race allowing you the chance to train with fellow Tŷ Hafan supporters.
As with last year’s event our cheering station will be located outside our Tŷ Hafan shop on Albany Road and provides the perfect spot for family and friends to cheer you on. We’re also hoping to secure a central venue near to the finish line where we can enjoy a drink afterwards and celebrate your incredible achievement - last year the lovely team at 29 Park Place hosted us before, during and after the event.
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.
Then we would love to hear from you!
