Fundraising tools:
To start fundraising:

Create your own online Enthuse or JustGiving fundraising page.

Buy your ticket on the Cardiff Half Marathon website and register with us to let us know! You will receive a branded charity top and any fundraising materials that you might need, and we will also be on hand to support you in your fundraising journey.

As you are buying your own tickets for the event, there is no minimum fundraising pledge. We would however encourage and support you to raise as much as possible, both in order to help us to cover the costs of the resources you receive but also to raise the maximum amount for Bristol Children’s Hospital or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

However, if you were lucky enough to nab one of our charity places, the minimum sponsorship is £300.

Once you have registered with us, you will be shown how to set up an online giving page.

We highly recommend creating a JustGiving page or an Enthuse page to share your story, pictures, the reason for your fundraising and any training updates with friends and family.

They are simple platforms to use, for both yourself and your supporters. All donations made to your page are transferred to us automatically and it allows supporters to gift aid their donations.

You can create a page by clicking this link and selecting the ‘fundraise for us’ button. Choose ‘taking part in an event’ and search for ‘Principality Cardiff Half Marathon 2024’, it’s always good to start early!

You need to be at least 17 years old to enter.

You can find lots of information about the event on the website and also a handy FAQ too.
