Why run with Worldwide Cancer Research and our Curestarter team?

By 2030 cancer is predicted to become the leading cause of death worldwide. We urgently need to start new cancer cures - but we can't do it alone. 

Taking part in an event can not only be really rewarding for you, it's also a great way to raise the vital funds we need to support ground-breaking cancer research. We only fund the brightest new ideas in research and each project could be the start of a new cancer cure of the future that will help us put an end to cancer.

But we can't do it without you. Will you apply today to join us at the start line to start new cures for cancer?

How will we support you if you're successful?

You'll be part of our team of Curestarters running for Worldwide Cancer Research, and nothing beats that race-day feeling of finally crossing the finish line in the world's greatest marathon.

Our chosen runners all receive:

  • A welcome pack full of tips and fundraising advice
  • Unlimited support and advice from our events team to help you meet your fundraising target
  • Access to an online network of fellow runners to provide support and advice
  • A running vest or technical t-shirt
