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!
Over the May Bank Holiday 3,000 adventurers will take on 100km from Capital to Coast in the 6th annual London to Brighton Challenge. Most will be walking at a pace that suits them, quite a few will jog parts, and some will run the whole course. It's tough but achievable - a test of stamina and determination, and an unforgettable journey of self discovery - with full support all the way.
Starting in Richmond it’s along the Thames, up the North Downs, some wonderful Sussex countryside before the South Downs and then the coast comes into view with the welcome home straight of Brighton Racecourse where the finish line awaits - and a fantastic sense of achievement.
Whether you're a walker and new to endurance events, or a marathon runner looking to up the distance - the journey will be amazing - there’s half challenge and quarter challenge options, and you can join as an individual or a team. With some training and determination anyone can conquer London to Brighton. So why not get in shape - and join a real challenge in 2017 for Run 4 Cancer.
