Based on an average person's stride it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk one mile and is equivalent to roughly 2,000 steps. 

There are plenty of free apps on your phone you can use to track your miles. We recommend Strava so once you've signed up you can connect your Cancer Research UK Giving Page and show off your progress!

Walk, run, skip, hop, jog. It's up to you how to complete your miles but sign up today for all the inspiration you need to complete your challenge.

One mile a day, one mission to beat cancer.

1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime. Our research saves lives and Cancer Research UK’s research has played a role in developing 8 of the world’s top 10 cancer drugs.

COVID-19 has slowed us down. But we will not stop. We are absolutely determined to continue our research to create better treatments for tomorrow, but we need your help today.
