Run the Cardiff Half Marathon 2013 for SOS Africa

Since the founding of the SOS Africa charity by a Swansea University student back in 2003, every year individuals from South Wales and beyond join together to take on a 13.1 mile challenge to raise critical funding for the SOS Africa charity. Since our very first Cardiff Half Marathon, hundreds of runners have raised well over £50,000 for the SOS Africa children!

The 2011 race was SOS Africa’s most successful half marathon fundraiser to date, during which 65 runners raised an incredible £12,000 for the charity! Last year’s memorable Olympic themed race was made extra special because William Pritchard, the charity’s top fundraiser and long-term sufferer of cerebral palsy, won two tickets to South Africa to meet the SOS Africa children. SOS Africa’s staff and volunteers were particularly delighted to be able to present Will with this special prize because of his commitment, dedication and many years of support: “We are thrilled to be able to award Will with this prize, as he has now completed 3 Cardiff Half Marathons for SOS Africa and raised well over £1000 for our children.”

If you are looking to raise funds for a great cause this summer and perhaps get fit at the same time, why not join us at the Cardiff Half Marathon 2013 on Sunday October 6th. You don’t have to be a committed athlete, it is not important to complete this race in a specific time, the most important thing is having fun and raising invaluable funds for the SOS Africa children.

If you join this year’s team you will receive a fundraising pack including a free SOS Africa t-shirt for race day. The event top fundraisers will also be in with a chance of winning two tickets to South Africa if they raise the most money for SOS Africa in 2013. For runners based in Swansea, we are also happy to organise transport for the morning of the race from the University Campus.

If you would like to run the Cardiff Half Marathon for SOS Africa in 2013, email [email protected]. You can also join our Facebook Page to receive regular updates about the team event. For specific information about the race visit the Cardiff Half Marathon website.
