What is Race for Life?
The Race for Life story
Race for Life is the UK’s biggest fight against cancer and the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK.
For the latest news from Race for Life, check out the Race for Life blog.
Since Race for Life started in 1994, an incredible six million participants have raised over £493million, more than any other UK event series raising money to fund cancer research.
Some of our Race for Life women take part in celebration of surviving a cancer experience. Others take part in memory of a loved one or to give hope to a cancer-free future. But all of you share a common goal: to raise money for Cancer Research UK's groundbreaking work and to help save more lives.
Progress we’ve made with your support
The money you have raised has been used to fund the work of over 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.
