Getting ready for your Race for Life

Anyone can take part in our events - all you need to do is join online, fundraise and turn up on the day!

Easy ways to prepare for your event

If you're taking part in a 10k and you want to get into the spirit of things beforehand, you can start walking more in the run-up to your event with our top tips:

1. Go for a short 15 minute walk - Try a short 15 minute walk every other day - why not walk the kids to school or leave the car behind when you pop to the shops?

2. Extend your activities - Take the dog for longer walks, or get off the bus a stop or two early.

3. Take a Sunday stroll - Gather the family together for a nice long Sunday stroll in the countryside! For maximum impact, try to do this a few times before your event.

4. Measure your success - Remember, even walking around the shops counts. Why not invest in a pedometer to see how far you're going? Or check your phone, most smartphones have inbuilt step trackers.

5. On the day - It's time for your event! Take it easy this week in preparation.
