Run for aortic dissection research

Run Cardiff for aortic dissection

The Cardiff Half Marathon is a remarkable event that takes place in the lively and historic city of Cardiff, offering a captivating 13.1-mile course that winds through its most iconic landmarks and picturesque locations. This flat, fast route is perfect for both experienced runners and newcomers to half marathons, promising an unforgettable running experience.

Team Aorta is proud to participate in the Cardiff Half Marathon, with the goal of raising essential funds for aortic dissection research. All sponsorship proceeds will go directly to aortic dissection research funding, which supports projects focused on enhancing clinical care, saving lives, and improving the quality of life for those affected by aortic dissection.

As you triumphantly cross the finish line, you’ll not only have achieved your personal running ambitions, but you’ll also be making a significant contribution to our research goals: to improve the lives of those living with aortic dissection.

Help us to save lives by funding advances in aortic dissection patient care through research

I lost my cousin at 55 through this and I believe something could have been done to prevent her death.


My brother died of this, the hospital he was in THE DAY BEFORE HE DIED did not diagnose this or check for this.
