Race for Life

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of events raising money for research into all types of cancer.

About This Campaign

The Race for Life is Cancer Research UK's biggest series of fundraising events. Taking place across the UK, the events include 5k and 10k routes for participants to walk, jog or run, as well as our Pretty Muddy obstacle events.

Race for Life started 25 years ago as a women-only event. The first event was held in Battersea, in 1994, where 750 participants raised £48,000. Since that point, Race for Life has grown into a series of hundreds of events across the country, raising nearly £500 million towards beating cancer over the last quarter of a century.

In 2019, for the first time, the Race for Life has opened its doors to men to participate too, making it a truly inclusive event, giving people the chance to come together with their family and friends, and join the movement to beat cancer.
