ABOUT THE 5K EVENT

 

The original and most popular Race for Life event, the 5k is an entry-level distance and an achievable first challenge for most. At just over 3 miles it can take about an hour to complete on average, but there's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Enter solo or in a group and run, jog or walk to fund life-saving research.

ON THE DAY

Race for life participants having fun at events

Take part in a group or go solo

Take part as an individual or in a group and have fun raising money for life-saving research. You can walk, jog or run, going at your own pace, or lead the way as a Group Leader getting family, friends and colleagues involved! However you choose to Race, you will be helping to beat cancer.

 

Warm up with other Race for Lifers

Get moving just before you begin your Race for Life event with a live and interactive warm up session.

Supporters and spectators welcome

Spectators are very welcome on the day to cheer you on! The more the merrier.

Soak up the atmosphere

After you've completed the course, why not make a day of it with other Race for Lifers, friends and family, in one of the picnic areas, or choose from one of the on-site food vendors.  

While your entry fee covers the cost of your event, it's the money you raise that will fund vital research and see more people surviving cancer.
