Category: Half Marathons

Plymouth's Half Marathon is a much celebrated traffic-free road race which takes in all that is great about Plymouth. Stunning coastal views, the beautiful National Trust grounds of Saltram Park, as well as the iconic Plymouth Hoe where Sir Francis Drake once played bowls.

How you could help

We could go on all day about why you should join our team, but that would be boring so we’ll keep hit short. Here are our top 5 reasons:

  2. You’ll receive an exclusive Teenage Cancer Trust running top.
  3. You’ll have access to our incredible training zone.

  5. You can talk to us. We’re here to support you.

5 reasons to run for us

£25 could pay for 1 hour of time for a Youth Support Co-ordinator, who’ll be there for young people and help them get together and support each other.

£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.

£230 could buy a real hair wig and salon styling from our Hair4U project – and help make the pain of hair loss a little easier to deal with.

£500 could pay for a young person to make a film to express their feelings and help family and friends understand what they’re going through.
