RunTogether and Race for Life
RunTogether and Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life are working together to encourage more women to join a RunTogether Group and RunTogether runners to sign up for Race for Life.
Why Cancer Research UK?
Each year more than 500,000 women take part in more than 300 Cancer Research UK Race for Life events across the UK – either 5K, 10K or a Pretty Muddy obstacle course run. Many of these women are new or potential new runners. We hope to give more women the confidence to run in their chosen event and to continue running after the event by inviting them to joining a RunTogether Group as they prepare for their event.
Encouraging Race for Life participants to join a local RunTogether Group
A RunTogether search box has been included on Race for Life events and training pages, so they can search for suitable RunTogether Groups. You may well find some new Race for Life ladies joining your RunTogether Group over the coming weeks - we’re sure you’ll make them feel welcome, as runners prepare for their big day.
Taking part in Race for Life
Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research relies on the amazing women who take part in Race for Life events every year. Everyone has a different reason for signing up – maybe they have lost a loved one, perhaps they’re a survivor, or maybe they have no personal connection to cancer, but want to help those who do.
If you’d like to take part in Race for Life, we are offering RunTogether runners £2-off entry to any 5K, Pretty Muddy or 10K event. Please get in touch with your local Run Leader who will give you a discount code.
You might even want to think about taking part in Race for Life with other members of your group.
