The 4 Musketeers tackle the IOW

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 4 Musketeers Walk Again!

On the weekend of 2-3 May, four intrepid trekkers AKA 'The Four Musketeers' will aim to complete the Isle of Wight Challenge.

However, this is no ordinary challenge! The team will aim to complete the gruelling 106 Km course in just 24 hours!

This is not an easy task with plenty of ups and downs along the route, potentially strong headwinds and variable weather conditions as well as a challenging timescale.

Fresh from our Peruvian adventure in 2014, we have been looking for another challenge to stave off the ageing process, keep our bodies in a decent working order and raise some much needed funds for Run 4 Cancer - a cause which is extremely close to all our hearts.

So if you like the idea of 4 geezers, trekking around an island, whilst singing very badly to some 80's tunes as they try to take their minds off the pain in their ankles/knees/hips as well as the blisters and chaffing(!) then please dig deep to support this excellent cause.
