Race For Life

19 September @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

£10.00 – £14.99

Race for Life is Cancer Research UK’s biggest series of fundraising events.

Taking place across the UK, the events include 3k, 5k and 10k routes for participants to walk, jog or run, as well as our Pretty Muddy obstacle events.

Started more than 25 years ago as a women-only event, Race for Life has grown into a series of hundreds of events across the country, raising nearly £500 million towards beating cancer over the last quarter of a century.

In 2019, for the first time, the Race for Life opened its doors to men to participate too, making it truly inclusive, and giving people the chance to come together with their family and friends, and join the movement to beat cancer.

Durham City will host 2 events, a 3k and 5k on Sunday 19th September, however other events are also available across the North East, check out the website for more details and to sign up to help beat cancer sooner.
