Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer.
We also make grants to UK based care institutions and fund research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.
WALK IT, JOG IT or RUN IT!
Great challenges need great settings - and there's none better than the Island's stunning coastal path. Past the famous Needles, Cowes at half way, on and right around the Island for a full 106km - with spectacular coastlines, dramatic white cliffs, sandy beaches and many ups & downs enroute.
Most of the 2,000 challengers will walk at a pace that suits them, some will jog parts, and quite a few will run the whole course ultra marathon style. All will have special reasons for taking it on - all will experience a test of determination and stamina - with full support all the way to the finish line. It's tough, but achievable, and highly rewarding. So why not start a journey - get fitter, push yourself - join us for a real challenge and an unforgettable Bank Holiday weekend!
The main start is in Chale - so the dramatic southern coastline is experienced in daylight - there's half & quarter distance options also - with a challenge base camp for those who are up for camping before they set off. You can join as an Individual or as a Team - and with some training and determination, anyone can take on the Isle of Wight. Push yourself in 2017 - and take on a real challenge for Run 4 Cancer!
