Race for Life Schools

Kids today will beat cancer tomorrow

Join us by holding your school's very own Race for Life event in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Race for Life Schools is totally free and easy to organise. It gives you the chance to hold your very own free Race for Life event with your pupils and staff. You can choose a day that fits with your term calendar, both boys and girls can take part and you can choose a distance which suits the age and abilities of your pupils.

We have fantastic support and tools which have all the information you need to run an event, in aid of Cancer Research UK, to help us fund the vital research needed to beat cancer.

Race for Life Schools Run Club

We’re excited to announce a partnership with Run Mummy Run, who will be trialling an after school Race for Life Schools Run Club. If your school is lucky enough to be chosen for this pilot, a Run Mummy Run representative will be in touch.

You’re under no obligation to proceed with the Run Club, but it is an excellent opportunity to encourage your students to get more active. Responsibility for the Run Club is that of the school, and the same Terms and Conditions as Race for Life Schools apply.

If the Run Clubs are successful, we will look into the possibility of opening this up to more schools in the future.
