Running

From 5k fun runs to full blown marathons, we have something for everyone whether you are dusting off your trainers for the first time or a seasoned runner. Every stride you take will help us support the 50,000 men diagnosed with male cancer each year.

If you’re taking part in a run not listed on our website we would still love to welcome you to our running team. If yours is an organised event then you just need to register with the organisers, then simply get in touch with the Events Team on 020 3745 7317 or email events@orchid-cancer.org.uk and let us know what and when your event is so that we can fully support you.
