Race for Life
We are proud to be an Official Sponsor of Race for Life, Cancer Research UK's biggest series of fundraising events. 1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime* but thanks to thousands of people all over the UK who participate in Race for Life every year to raise money for life-saving research, Cancer Research UK is able to continue their vital research to bring forward a world where everybody can lead longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer.
Race for Life events are held all over the UK throughout the summer, with 3k, 5k or 10k events, as well as Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids obstacle courses. Race for Life is open to everyone, no matter your fitness level, background or ability. You can tackle the course however you choose, either on your own or with a group.
As the Official Running Retailer of Race for Life, we're passionate about encouraging everyone of all abilities to get outdoors, get active and have fun with your friends and love ones. We know how much happier we are outside and we wanted to share our depth of experience with a community that is taking great steps to make a difference together in partnership. Since Race for Life began in 1994, over 10m people have taken part, raising over £940m to help fund life-saving research. This year we're celebrating 30 years of Race for Life. Join us to make it one to remember! We will be creating bespoke training plans to support your every movement, with our in-store experts offering free gait analysis to help you find the right shoes for you.
