Cancer Research UK is the only charity fighting over 200 types of cancer including the one that is closest to you. Your support will go towards the £17 million that is spent every year on research in Manchester by more than 2000 locally based researchers in collaboration with the Christie Hospital and the University of Manchester.

New for the 2016 race is a chance to take part in CRUK's first ever Corporate Challenge in Manchester. If you are in a team of 5 or more and can commit to raising £2,000 between you then we would love to have you as part of the team, where we can bring forward the day where all cancers are cured.

All the money raised from this event, again, will be used to fund research in the Manchester area, for more information on the work Cancer Researck UK does in Manchester please click here.
