Race for Life is the UK’s biggest fight against cancer and the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Since Race for Life started in 1994, an incredible six millions participants have raised over £457million, more than any other UK event series raising money to fund cancer research. Since Race for Life began an incredible six million participants across the UK have raised over £457 million to fund the work of over 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer. I will be doing the race alongside my mother, so even if you just come down to support us and our fellow racers, it's free! If you do wish to take part, there is a fee that you will need to pay. So what's expected on the day? Arrival – one hour before start This gives you plenty of time to soak up the atmosphere and to do any last minute preparations such as pinning on your back sign or putting finishing touches to your outfit. There’s no need to check-in on the day – just make your way towards the stage area where there will be music to get all the participants and supporters in the mood. This is the perfect opportunity to drop off any quality items you no longer want at the Donation Station marquee at your event, which we can then sell in your local Cancer Research UK shops. Welcome from the Race for Life team – 30 minutes before start Your Race for Life event organiser welcomes you and shares information about the groundbreaking work that Cancer Research UK do, and explains why your support is vital. Warm-up – 20 minutes before start You can take part in a light aerobic warm-up with all the other participants to get those muscles ready for your event. Take your places – 10 minutes before start You make your way to the walkers or runners flags, depending on whether you want to walk, jog or run the course. Start time The starting signal goes and you're off with friends and family gathered round to cheer you on. Celebration – after your event Once you’ve crossed the finish line, you will receive a Race for Life medal and a goody bag as a thank-you for taking part from one of our volunteers. I'd love to see you guys there and hope you can make it!
