Women at a Race for Life event

Training doesn't have to be just about following a training plan.

Why not think about walking some or all of the way to work? If the full distance is a bit much, try getting off your bus or train a stop earlier and walking the rest of the way. You could join a running club or even form a walk-to-work group and get your colleagues involved.

Keeping active is one of the ways you can reduce your cancer risk. 

Running groups in your area

We know that jogging or running is more fun when shared with others, that’s why we’ve teamed up with RunTogether to help you prepare for big day. RunTogether Groups are fun, friendly organised jogs / runs, led by qualified and insured Run Leaders. There are more than 1,000 RunTogether Groups across England, suitable for all abilities.
