It is Wales’ largest mass-participation and multi-charity fundraising event and the second largest half in the UK. Its flat, fast course passes all the city’s most breath-taking scenery and iconic landmarks including Cardiff Castle, the Principality Stadium, Civic Centre and stunning Cardiff Bay. Thousands of spectators turn out to cheer on the runners in a city renowned for its sporting passion.
Help us to give Hair and Hope to children and young people by providing wigs and funding vital research into childhood cancers. The charity provides around 2,000 real hair wigs every year to children and young people who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or due to other conditions such as Alopecia.
Each wig costs £700 to provide. Our wigs make a huge, positive difference to the lives of each recipient. We rely on events like these to help fund our free wig provision service.
The Little Princess Trust is also now one of the largest funders of childhood cancer research in the UK and has committed more than £22 million to projects focused on finding kinder and more effective treatments for childhood cancers.
