Free Family Dash entry for children with Type 1 diabetes

We are delighted to be returning to this year’s JCP Swansea Half Marathon on Sunday 23 June as one of the event’s official charities – and have a special offer for families of children with Type 1 diabetes.

Family fun run

The race organisers have kindly arranged for children with Type 1 diabetes to take part in the 2km Family Dash for free!

The Family Dash is suitable for runners of all ages. It covers 2km of the award-winning half marathon course and crosses the official finish line. Every finisher receives a medal and bottle of water. Entry normally costs £10 per person, plus booking fee, but children with Type 1 diabetes are invited to take part free of charge (terms and conditions apply).

Join the fun

If you would like to join the fun, please contact the team on wales@diabetes.org.uk and let us know how many places you would like. We will then provide you with entry codes that will allow you to enter children with Type 1 for free.

We hope lots of you will get involved! And don't forget – we still have guaranteed places available for the Half Marathon, where we will be attempting to break a World Record for runners with Type 1 diabetes.
