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 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.

Get your place

Family Dash terms and conditions:

  • This offer is only available to children with Type 1 diabetes. Any siblings, parents or friends who want to join them will need to secure their own place.
  • Any children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Parents of unaccompanied children over the age of 7 must ensure their children are escorted to the start area, and meet them at the Family Dash run off on Museum Green at the end of the 2km run.
  • Entries will not be accepted on the day.
