There is an £49 entry fee for the 100km and a minimum fundraising pledge of £475. For the 50km challenge there will be an entry fee of £39 with a minimum fundraising pledge of £295. If you want to take on the £25km challenge there will be an entry fee of £29 with a minimum fundraising pledge of £175.

You'll need to have raised 50% of your sponsorship target 6 weeks before the event to confirm your place. But don't worry; we've got loads of fundraising tips and support to help you achieve this.

Our supporters fund half of all the cancer research done in the UK – collectively we’re saving more lives every day.
