Run 4 Cancer - About Us

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 primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer.

We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

The Course

Isle of Wight Marathon Course
Isle of Wight Marathon Course Profile

The race starts and ends at Park Road in Cowes. A brand new course (first used in 2013) sees one lap featuring the much quieter roads on the West of the island. These are the undulating town and rural roads through Cowes, Gurnard, Rew Street, Porchfield, Shalfleet, Yarmouth, Afton, Willmingham, Thorley, Wellow, Shalfleet, Porchfield, Northwood and Cowes. There are marker boards at each mile point. Sorry but the course is not suitable for wheelchairs.
