Challenge yourself to the scenic south coast marathon and help us start new cures for cancer all over the world.

Distance: 26 Miles
Registration Fee: £25
Minimum fundraising target: Raise as much as you can

Why run with us?

By 2030 cancer is predicted to become the leading cause of death worldwide. We urgently need to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer - but we can't do it alone.  

With your help, we vow to keep funding more lifesaving research projects into any type of cancer, anywhere in the world. We won’t stop until cancer does.  

You'll be part of a team of runners taking part for Worldwide Cancer Research, and nothing beats that race-day atmosphere of crossing the finish line.

Please note: We’re in regular contact with the event organiser and will continue to keep you informed as we hear any further updates from the event organisers. Your health and safety is our top priority and we’re following coronavirus guidance issued by governments across the UK. 

Due to unprecedented circumstances, we have extra spaces available which must be filled this year. There is currently no minimum fundraising target for these additional spaces, we are just asking you to raise as much as you can to start new cures.

*These spaces are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis, so we encourage prompt application. Whilst it's likely you will receive a place, we cannot guarantee this if we become oversubscribed. We monitor applications every weekday and will be in touch as soon as possible if Team Curestarter reaches capacity.
