Run for our Headline Charity
The Reading Half Marathon are pleased to announce 'Cancer Research UK' as the official race charity for 2020.
Together we will beat cancer
Cancer Research UK is the only charity fighting over 200 types of cancer and our life-saving research will bring forward the day where all cancers are cured. The generosity of our supporters has enabled the charity to lead the way in discovering and developing newer, kinder treatments and cures.
Every step towards curing cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person. Without the support of our volunteers, supporters and every single one of our runners, our scientists would not be able to do their work in the lab. We're all working together to save more lives by preventing, controlling and curing all cancers.
One in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime, but more of us beat cancer than ever before – in fact survival rates have doubled since the 1970's. So run the Reading Half Marathon and together we will beat cancer.
