Schools don't break records, they beat cancer

Join thousands of schools across the country supporting Cancer Research UK and hold your own Race for Life Schools event. 

It’s free to take part and easy to organise – you choose the date, location and distance and we’ll send you an event kit with everything you’ll need including medals, back-signs, finish line tape, banners and much more. 

Whether you're just one class or the whole school. Running 1k or walking 3k. Together we will beat cancer.
