Join the Race for Life

Join the Race for Life


This is not a race
This is a 5k like no other. This is thousands of people uniting with one purpose.
To come together. To raise money. To beat cancer.

The Colchester route winds around historic Lower Castle Park and encompasses views of the river, lakes and of course the dramatic Roman Walls and Castle. With a number of stalls providing activities, face painting and a selection of refreshments available, why not encourage your friends and family to come along to support you. This is a beautiful venue, steeped in history.

The Race for Life 5k is a series of routes around the country that give people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities the chance to come together and show cancer who's boss. They're not races, or runs, and everyone wins the Race for Life (except cancer).
