Race for Life Schools

Kids today will beat cancer tomorrow

Join us by holding your school's very own Race for Life event in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Race for Life Schools is totally free and easy to organise. It gives you the chance to hold your very own free Race for Life event with your pupils and staff. You can choose a day that fits with your term calendar, both boys and girls can take part and you can choose a distance which suits the age and abilities of your pupils.

We have fantastic support and tools which have all the information you need to run an event, in aid of Cancer Research UK, to help us fund the vital research needed to beat cancer.
