Running for a charity is an amazing thing to do.

Knowing your run has helped others, gives a huge boost to the satisfaction you’ll feel on finishing the race. You’ll also be more highly motivated during your training and the race itself.

In 2012 over 800 charities and good causes were represented in the Lloyds TSB Cardiff Half Marathon and a staggering £2.2million raised.

If you are looking for a charity to run for check out our List of Associated Charities or learn more about our Charity Partner Barnardo’s

Remember to inform the charity you’ve chosen that you’re running for them in the Lloyds TSB Cardiff Half Marathon. They will give you your official sponsorship forms, details of how to pay in the money raised and specialist help and support.

Good luck with your fundraising – the charity you have chosen needs your help!
