Building on the tremendous success of recent years, Hospice of the Valleys is delighted to announce we have 15 charity places available and we would love to have you join our team.

Help us by fundraising to continue to provide the exceptional care and support to patients and their loved ones who need it most in Blaenau Gwent.

The Hospice has to pay for every charity place at a cost of £85.00 which has gone up again for 2023 and is why we have had to introduce a £15 registration fee and ask our runners to raise a minimum of £200 sponsorship and of course you don’t have to stop there!  We will support you every step of the way with your fundraising.

Please note registration fee is non refundable under any circumstances including but not limited to illness, injury, holidays, pregnancy change in shift pattern, military deployment and also including if the organisers of Cardiff Half cancel or postpone the event.  Please ensure you read the Hospice Terms and Conditions.

Reasons to do it…

 There are many reasons to run the Cardiff Half Marathon for Hospice of the Valleys – whether it’s in memory of a loved one, because you, a family or friend has received support from the Hospice, to push and challenge yourself or simply because you need somewhere to wear your costume…What are you waiting for?


Ricky kindly shared why he and his family decided to take part in Cardiff Half for the Hospice.


“On the 13th of August 2018 my world fell apart when my dad (Dean) was officially diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer at the age of 49.  He fought his hardest for six months, but even he wasn’t strong enough to beat it! On January 8th 2019, just eight days before his 50th birthday, Dad sadly passed away.

From start to finish, day or night, the Hospice of the Valleys were there to support Dad and ease his pain. The gratitude we as a family have for the Hospice can’t be said in a thank you. No one realises just know how much they actually do for you, until you experience something as traumatic yourself.

Running the Cardiff half marathon together, gave us something to focus on and work towards, whilst still grieving the death of Dad. At the beginning, running as little as 3 miles for any of us was a challenge, so 13.1 miles sounded crazy!

However, after months of hard work and determination, the training finally paid off when we crossed that finish line! I know that Dad would have been proud of us all. Together we have raised money for a wonderful charity. Thank you from the bottom our hearts”



The minimum age for our charity place is 17 years old.

Thank you from everyone here at the Hospice.
