Do you want to get active with your friends and family while doing something amazing to help beat cancer?

Well, Race for Life is back for 2022 and there are hundreds of events taking place across the country this summer.

Who will you Race for?

Everyone has a reason to Race for Life. 1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime*, but all of us can help beat it.

Join Heart and help make Race for Life bigger than ever before by taking part in your local 3k, 5k, 10k or Pretty Muddy event.

Your support is more important than ever

Sign up to your local Race for Life event and raise money for life-saving cancer research!

Events include 5k and 10k routes for participants to walk, jog or run, as well as Pretty Muddy obstacle courses for both adults and kids. In addition, a new 3k route has been introduced for those wishing to take on a slightly shorter distance. The Race for Life is open to everyone, no matter your fitness level, background or gender.

When you sign up to Race for Life, you pledge to raise at least £50 to help fund life saving research and change the lives of people affected by cancer.

Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Your support, through events like Race for Life, is what helps Cancer Research UK continue their ground-breaking work to see more people surviving cancer.

Race for Life is an amazing feel-good experience where you can come together with friends and family to help beat cancer!
