Join in the fun on 15th December at Cam Gears, Resolven for the 2nd annual Reindeer Run.

This is a lovely flat 5k although there may well be a boggy section depending on the weather. To finish there will be Christmas music at race HQ! Plus, after then run there will be free tea, coffee, mince pies and sweets, as well as a chance to chat and relax.

The route is marked with reindeer signs and every entrant will receive a reindeer themed medal and goody bag.

Fancy dress is encouraged though not obligatory.

Please note that children under 16 must be supervised by an adult at all times and you are responsible for your child out on the course.

This is an event designed for all abilities and speeds and you are welcome to run, jog or walk with no time constraints

5 Reasons to run with us

  2. You’ll receive an exclusive Teenage Cancer Trust running top.
  3. You’ll have access to our incredible training zone.
  4. You’ll get all the fundraising help you need to reach your goal.
  5. You can talk to us. We’re here to support you

How you can help young people

£30 could pay for an hour of care from a Teenage Cancer Trust nurse, who will understand the challenges of dealing with cancer as a young person and specialise in the best treatment for the cancers that affect this age group.

£50 could buy a round of pizzas for a young person and their friends, which might just be the first thing that tempts a young person out of bed after a gruelling round of chemo.

£100 could pay for 5 hours of time from one of our Multi-Disciplinary Team Co-ordinators, so they can build links with NHS staff, find our about every young cancer patient and arrange the right support.

£200 could pay for one of our Youth Support Co-ordinator to give a group of young people a night out at the cinema or bowling – a world away from treatments and appointments. 

£420 could pay for a young person to develop new skills and confidence at a Royal Albert Hall workshop, before enjoying a Teenage Cancer Trust show at the iconic venue.
