Join Team Can Prevent for the 2017 London Marathon Walk or Half Marathon Walk, and help us to continue our groundbreaking research. One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, but with your help, we’ll be one step closer to preventing cancer and the misery it causes.

Registration is £25 and in order to secure one of our charity places we ask that you raise a minimum of £200 (full marathon) or £125 (half marathon) in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid). We’ll be here to support you along the way and have lots of fundraising ideas and tips to help make it easier!

If you’re interested in a charity place with us, please submit a registration form.

  • An exclusive World Cancer Research Fund T-shirt
  • A dedicated Events Team to help support you along the way
  • Materials for friends and family to create their own cheering point to boost you round the course!
