Run the Cardiff Half Marathon for charity and help us be here for children

Conquer the Cardiff Half Marathon with #TeamNSPCC in October 2024. Starting outside Cardiff Castle, run past the capital's most iconic landmarks before a grandstand finish in the heart of the city.

Why take part?

  • A predominately fast and flat course, this route is perfect for beginners and experienced runners alike.
  • Receive world-class training tips and tailored support from our training partners.
  • Get your own NSPCC running vest with iron-on letters.
  • Be rewarded with VIP treatment at our post-race food and drinks marquee.
  • There'll be lots of whoops and cheers from our cheer points en route.
  • You'll be doing something amazing for children.

A child contacts Childline every 45 seconds and it costs £4 to answer their call. By raising £300 you could pay for up to 75 children to get the help and support they need from our Childline counsellors.*
