Swansea University is new title sponsor of the Swansea half marathon

Swansea UniversitySwansea University has signed a three-year deal to become the headline sponsor for the multi-award-winning Swansea Half Marathon.

The sponsorship forms part of the University’s Making Strides for Mental Health campaign, which raises funds for essential world-class research into suicide prevention, along with mental health and wellbeing support for Swansea University students.

As a registered charity, Swansea University is encouraging people to run the half marathon on its behalf, with all funds raised going towards:

  • Funding research by the world-leading mental health researcher Professor Ann John into suicide prevention across the globe.
  • Establishing a Student Nursing Hub to support nursing students’ mental health and create a more resilient NHS workforce.
  • Making exercise more accessible to students to help with their mental health and wellbeing.

A number of free entry places will be available for people who pledge to raise more than £200 for the University’s Making Strides campaign, with a further general discount available to students, staff and 150 graduates.

This year’s Swansea Half Marathon, twice named the UK’s best half marathon, will be held on Sunday 11th June, 20023.

JCP Solicitors sponsored the event since its inception in 2014 and will now join the list of silver sponsor partners, along with chartered accountants Matthews & Co, and HMT Sancta Maria Hospital.

Register to run on behalf of Swansea University at this year’s Swansea Half Marathon.
