We're so excited to welcome our Team Macmillan runners back to Cardiff for the Autumn edition of Cardiff Half Marathon. This is a sell-out event so be quick to secure a charity place with Macmillan Cancer Support and help us to support people living with cancer.
How to enter the Cardiff Half Marathon
There are two ways you can join Team Macmillan in this event.
Secure a charity place at the Cardiff Half Marathon
Bag yourself one of our charity places and help us be there for people living with cancer in the UK. We ask for a £25 fee and a fundraising pledge of £250 (excluding gift aid).
If you have bought a place in the race already and would like to run for us, sign up here and we'll get a free Macmillan running top sent to you. There's no minimum sponsorship, just raise as much as you can!
Why should I join Team Macmillan?
As a Team Macmillan runner you'll receive:
A free Macmillan technical running top plus iron-on letters to customise your kit
A fundraising pack bursting with fundraising tips and tricks
Access to our online training materials
Regular e-newsletters to keep you up to date with Macmillan's news and activities
The loudest and most supportive cheer points on the course!
Most importantly we'll provide you with a reason to keep going because you'll know that you're helping improve the lives of people living with cancer. Donations make up 98% of our annual income so we simply couldn't do what we do without you.
Please make sure you have read our Terms and Conditions before signing up. You must be aged 17 or over on the day of the event to take part.
The event does allow hand-propelled wheelchair competitors. Please be aware there is a long incline early on at 3 miles and a significant climb at 12 miles for about 300 metres that previous wheelchair participants have found difficult and have had to go up backwards.
You should also be aware that there are a number of speed bumps around the course, including along Penarth Portway in Penarth Marina at the 4 mile point and around Roath Park Lake between the 10-12 mile point.
Participants taking part in a wheelchair are able to have a complimentary support runner. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to have a support runner with you.
Ready to join?
By joining us you'll know that you're helping improve the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.
We need an army of cheerers to make this event special. If running is not your thing or you have any family and friends who'd like to come and support you on the day, we'd love them to join our volunteer team!
