How far is 3k?

A Race for everyone

Getting ready for your Race for Life

And we mean everyone! It takes most people around 35 minutes to walk 3 kilometres (just under 2 miles), that’s less time than you’d spend going around the supermarket. Easy! 

People of all ages and abilities can have a go at this accessible distance. And everyone’s a winner - the one thing we’re beating is cancer.
