Everyone can have a go
Depending on your fitness, it takes between 45 minutes and an hour to walk 5 kilometres, which is just over 3 miles. If you took it at a steady jog, you’d be crossing the finish line in a cool half-hour.
So gather your mum, grandad, colleagues or kids for this accessible distance. Everyone’s a winner – the one thing we’re beating is cancer.
