How long is the cancer Race for Life? At just over 3 miles, it’s about the same length as a Sunday stroll in the countryside. Remember, our events are entirely non-competitive, you won’t be timed and most people who take part walk.
What time is the race for life? The Race for life will start at 9.30am on Southsea Common. Participants have been advised to arrive 30 to 45 minutes before their start time so that they are prepared and ready to go on time.
What is the aim of Race for Life? Race for Life is a series of fundraising events, organised by charity Cancer Research UK. They involve running, jogging or walking a 5-kilometre, 10-kilometre or ‘Pretty Muddy’ course and raising sponsorship for doing so. The money raises funds for cancer research in all 200 types of cancer.
Where does the money go for Race for Life? Where do the funds raised go? All Race For Life sponsorship goes towards Cancer Research UK’s lifesaving work, funding laboratories, tests and treatments of all 200 types of cancer.
