Ty Hafan Character Chase LogoTake on Ty Hafan's first ever character chase. Meet some of your favourite characters...TV Mascots, winter princesses, space troopers, heroes and villains...while you run their 100m dash or 5k fun run.

Tŷ Hafan is a place where memories are created and cherished. It’s about joy, laughter and friendship. It’s about life. Over the last 20 years, nursing has changed significantly but Tŷ Hafan has risen to the challenge, delivering quality paediatric palliative care to families across Wales. They need to ensure they can keep their doors open and that’s why they need you! Be part of the bigger picture with a target to reach £40,000 from this magical event.

In this fundraising fun run with a twist, children and adults take on either a 100m or a 5km fun run within the enchanting Singleton Park, Swansea (x2 laps of 2.5k = 5k) and all along the way, families will be able to mix and interact with their favourite characters from story books, TV shows and films. They'll meet TV Mascots, winter princesses, heroes and villains and a whole host of spectacular characters. Runners will be able to pirouette with the princesses, hiss at the villains and high five their heroes as they make their way to the finish.

Once you have completed the fun run, make your way to the finish that ends happily ever after; collect your medal, pose for photos with your favourite characters and soak up the atmosphere in their event village.

They would love to see you in fancy dress but don't worry if that's not your thing!

As this is a fundraising event they are asking participants to try and set themselves a target of £15.00 sponsorship for the 100m dash(under 7's only) or £50 sponsorship for the 5k fun run (5+years of age - under 16's £20.00 sponsorship).

Registration opens from 11am - 12pm with a race start at 12.30pm for their 5k fun run. Their 100m dash will start at 2pm but you can still register from 11am- 1.30pm. 

There will be fun activities/entertainment going on in the warm up area, children's rides, more spectacular characters roaming in the event village, food/drink vendors and music from The Wave and Swansea Sound all day, so make sure you make a day of it!
