Looking for a charity place?

By taking one of our charity spots for this fantastic event you’ll be helping 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 free but in order to secure one of our charity places we ask that you raise a minimum of £350 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid). We’ll be here every step of the way to support you 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.

What we’ll offer you:

  • An exclusive World Cancer Research Fund running vest
  • A Welcome Pack filled with fundraising hints and tips
  • A dedicated Events Team, to help support you along the way with training plans
  • Cheering points for friends and family to join, to give you a much needed boost during the race!

Got your own place?

If you have managed to secure a place through the public ballot and want to help us prevent cancer, please get in touch. Team Cancer Prevention would love to welcome you - you’ll have all the benefits and support, but there is no minimum fundraising target. Just raise as much as you can and have fun!

Not sure if running’s for you?
