Could you go the distance to help create a world where no one develops a preventable cancer?

We know that around 40% of cancer cases are preventable – that’s around 144,000 people every year in the UK.

Help us prevent more cases of cancer by running a marathon for World Cancer Research Fund. The money you raise will go to our scientists researching more ways to prevent cancer and our health information team who help people to reduce their cancer risk.

We'll be there to help you every step of the way, with fundraising tips, an online community of fellow competitors and support on the day.
