Join up for the first Cardiff Trail Half Marathon taking place from the stunning Forest Fawr. New for 2019, Cardiff Trail Half Marathon will be a UK Athletics licensed event which will take place on Sunday 10 November 2019.

The event will take you on a journey through some of Cardiff best known landmarks. With the route starting at Fforest Fawr. 

Will it be flat? NO! Will it be boring? NO! It's not called Tough Runner for nothing! The Half Marathon race is open to all levels, from beginners to elite athletes. Everyone is welcome to sign up.

I need a place

We don’t have charity places in this event, but you can still take part and help young people with cancer.

Simply buy your place directly through the organisers, then let us know you’ve got it by filling out our free online fundraising registration form and set your own fundraising target.

5 reasons to run with us

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

  1. You’ll help young people with cancer.

  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

£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 out 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.
