Running events and challenges

Challenge yourself to take part in an event for WCRF and raise vital funds for our cancer prevention work

Runner for WCRF


Whether this is your 1st or your 100th run for World Cancer Research Fund, we’re here to help you every step of the way with our personalised fundraising tips, online training hub and on-going support.

Every day in the UK around 1,100 people will hear the words ‘you have cancer’. Over 400 of these people could have avoided this diagnosis, that’s 147,000 people every year. At WCRF we are passionate about reducing this number. To do so, more people need access to our information so that they can make simple everyday changes to their diet, weight and physical activity.

Although great advances have been made with cancer treatments, we still have so much more to do. Without your help the 147,000 number of diagnoses will only increase and many more people will continue to suffer or die unnecessarily from cancer that could have been avoided.

Your support will help us fund critical research and our education programmes.

We currently have places for the following events:
