5k events

This is not a race

This is a 5k like no other. This is thousands of people uniting with one purpose.

To come together. To raise money. To beat cancer.

The Race for Life 5k

The Race for Life 5k is a series of routes around the country that give people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities the chance to come together and show cancer who's boss. They're not races, or runs, and everyone wins the Race for Life (except cancer).

With more than 150 Race for Life 5k events across the UK, you won’t need to travel too far to find one.
