If you enjoy walking or running and have taken part in charity runs before, then a 10k could be the one for you. Take it at your own pace, in a group, or go solo and push yourself a bit further while helping to fund our life-saving cancer research.

Bring a water bottle
We’re trying to reduce single-use plastic at Race for Life. Please bring your own reusable water bottle, already filled. We'll provide an ecofriendly water-refill station at the finish that uses as little single-use plastic as possible.

Have the right kit
It’s a good idea to check the weather before your event and dress accordingly. Think breathable sports gear (leggings and shorts are ideal) and well-fitting trainers. For Pretty Muddy, wear something you don’t mind getting dirty.
