Run the London Marathon for #TeamCardiff

Join #TeamCardiff and run for Cardiff University research at the London Marathon 2022.

As part of #TeamCardiff you can choose to support either Cardiff University’s neuroscience and mental health, or cancer research. By supporting the next generation of researchers, you can help accelerate life-changing discoveries to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for people living with a wide range of conditions.

Run London Marathon virtually

We have limited places for the virtual TCS London Marathon 2022, the world’s biggest marathon, on 2 October 2022. Complete 26.2 miles wherever you are in the world, at your own pace, the same day as the mass event in London.

You’ll receive a #TeamCardiff technical top to run in on the day, and personal support and guidance with your training and fundraising. The TCS London Marathon team will also provide you with a running number, full package of pre-event information as well access to the free official app powered by TCS. Upon finishing, you’ll be able to claim that coveted official finisher medal and T-shirt.

We ask our #TeamCardiff fundraiser to raise a minimum of £200. Please note, we will allocate our limited charity places using the information you provide, so please give as much detail as possible.

Apply for a virtual place

Join #TeamCardiff with your own place

If you have your own place, whether in the mass or virtual event, we’d love to have you on board as part of #TeamCardiff. You’ll receive all the same support as our charity place runners, and you can set your own fundraising target.

Your fundraising will help fund grants for early career researchers that provide a launch pad to explore new ideas and unlock future funding opportunities. By supporting the next generation of researchers you’re nurturing new talent and investing in innovative ideas.

Cancer researchers at Cardiff University are improving outcomes for people living with some of the most common cancers such as breast, prostate and bowel, as well as those that are rarer or hard to treat.

Cardiff University’s neuroscience and mental health researchers are developing new treatments for a wide range of debilitating conditions including ADHD, depression, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer’s.

The money you raise

100% of your fundraising will go directly to your chosen University research cause.
