Race for Life 2019

Calling all cancer beaters!  Have you joined the world’s most important race? Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer

After 25 years of being a female only event, we are excited to be inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children to join us at the start line in 2019 to help beat cancer sooner.

We’re urging mums, dads, nans, grandpas, brothers, sisters, friends and workmates to show their support by joining the Race for Life. It’s a perfect example of everyday people doing an extraordinary thing – uniting in a common cause to beat cancer.

Here are links to some of the local events happening around Kent.

There are also 10km races at these venues plus lots more Race for Life events taking place around the country. Visit, put in your postcode, and find an event near you.

You don’t have to be sporty to take part. You don’t need to train or compete against anyone else. All you need to do is go to the Race for Life website, pick an event, sign up and then have fun raising money in whatever way you like.

Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Your support, through events like the Race for Life, is what helps us continue our ground-breaking work to see more people surviving cancer.
