Spring and early summer 2021 events postponed


Cancer Research UK constantly monitors the COVID-19 situation in the UK and based on the most recent lockdown and commentary on when measures may be eased, we've made the difficult decision to postpone our Race for Life events due to take place in the spring and early summer until later in the year. 

We know this is disappointing and we are sorry for any inconvenience this news may cause. The safety of our participants, volunteers and staff remain our top priority and we believe that rescheduling will give us the best chance for these Race for Life events to go ahead. 

If you have signed up to a spring event or the relevant summer events, we will be in touch as soon as we can with an update and to reschedule.

How we're keeping you safe

Race for Life back sign

After a year where vital cancer trials have been delayed, the Race for Life is more important than ever.

As always at our events the health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you updated with our planning, much of which will focus on how we deliver a safe event in the context of all necessary COVID-19 guidelines and precautions.

It may be that events look a little different this year but we are working proactively with our venues and suppliers to deliver a great experience on site.
