Cancer Research UK’s Peterborough Race for Life

About

Join us as we beat cancer on 25th October 2020 by taking part in Cancer Research UK’s Peterborough Race for Life at The East of England Arena and Events Centre.

Everyone wins the Race for Life (except cancer)! This is not a race. This is a 5k like no other. This is thousands of people uniting with one purpose. To come together. To raise money. To beat cancer.

The Race for Life is a fundraising route that gives people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities the chance to come together and show cancer who’s boss. They’re not races or runs, and everyone wins the Race for Life (except cancer).

10k (or just over six miles) may sound a little daunting, but it’s not when you know you can do it at your own pace. If you’ve taken part in one of our 5k events before and would like to try a longer route, or if you just think that 10k is a better distance for you.

Although ‘Race’ features in the name, the event is not competitive. Instead, ‘the Race for Life’ is about Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists working as hard and fast as possible to help more people survive.

Everyone can join in, including dogs! Suitable for all ages (children must be accompanied by an adult).

All money raised will be used to fund research into the causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of all types of cancer.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear (trainers/running shoes) and be prepared for all weather. There is free car parking via the main entrance to The East of England Arena and Events Centre.
