Official Charity Partner

Cancer Research UK has been the official charity of the London Winter Run since it’s first year, in 2015.

Together, we have raised over £3.5 million towards their life-saving work. We’ve funded Cancer Research UK research that has helped double cancer survival in the last 40 years.

2020 has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone. Cancer Research UK funds around 50% of all cancer research here in the UK. But COVID-19 is threatening to severely impact cancer research and make Cancer Research UK’s ambition of improving cancer survival to 3 in 4 by 2034 more difficult.

Cancer Research UK are absolutely determined to continue their life-saving research. But to save lives tomorrow, they need your help today. By supporting and raising money for the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run you’ll be helping to fund vital research and together, we will still beat cancer.

Your entry fee can’t beat cancer. Only you can. It’s not too late to begin fundraising. Simply set up a fundraising page, share it with your friends and family and we’ll send you a fundraising pack with a running t-shirt or vest to wear on the day.

Fundraise for Team Cancer Research UK and together we will beat cancer.

The difference you’d be making:



Could fund a lab technician for one week



Could fund a trial for one day, looking for the best combination and dose of chemotherapy  drugs to treat leukaemia



£200 funds our team of 10 cancer nurses, who offer confidential support and expert guidance to people affected by cancer. The nurses are available every weekday and are happy to answer any questions or concerns about a cancer diagnosis, symptoms or treatment options.
