To avoid missing out on a place in the Cardiff Half Marathon we recommend applying for a WellChild guaranteed place.  If you then discover you have a place in the ballot we would love for you to still run for WellChild but there would be no fundraising target.

Pledge to raise £250 in sponsorship (not including Gift Aid). If you have secured your own place there is no set target and we just ask you to raise as much as you can.

Join the team and you’ll receive your training and fundraising pack that gives you loads of advice. In addition, you will receive regular e-newsletter updates, technical running vest and fundraising materials.  The WellChild Challenge team of Mel and Claire will also be on hand to give you any advice and is on the other end of the phone to prepare you for your big day!

You’ll need to train hard as running a half marathon is no easy challenge! You need to be able to complete the course in under four and half hours.

If you are injured before the challenge and need to withdraw please contact the Challenge Events department at WellChild as soon as possible. If you are injured on the day of the race organisers will have adequate first aid cover.
