Run for our
The Reading Half Marathon are pleased to partner with Cancer Research UK as our Headline Charity Partner for 2024. Cancer Research UK is the only charity fighting over 200 types of cancer and their life-saving research will bring forward the day where all cancers are cured.
Together we will beat cancer
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.
There are two ways to enter and support this wonderful charity:
You can select Cancer Research UK as your chosen charity when you enter here
You can sign up for a charity place directly with Cancer Research UK and commit to achieving a fundraising target. Further information here.
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.
