General information

5k (or just over 3 miles) is an achievable distance for all ages and abilities. You can take part however you like and choose to run, jog or walk your way around the course. You can take part as an individual or gang up with friends and create your own group to really show cancer who’s in charge.

10k (or just over 6 miles) may sound a little daunting but it is an achievable challenge for anyone with a bit of training. If you’ve taken on one of our 5k events before then this is a great distance to try and push yourself further.


Adult entry (16+ women-only) – £14.99
Child entry (6-15 girls and boys under 13) – £10.00
