Run for Charity


We are delighted to announce an exciting partnership with Cancer Research UK, the Official Charity of Rat Race Events.

Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to saving lives through cancer research. Their work, funded entirely by the public, is nothing short of ground-breaking. It has meant that cancer survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years.

A message from Cancer Research UK

‘Both Cancer Research UK and Rat Race share a spirit of challenging what is thought to be impossible. But we believe that, by working together, and with the support of our adventurous Rat Race participants, we will beat cancer. Take part in Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest for Cancer Research UK, and we’ll pay part of your entry fee! If you beat Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest  and raise £100 for Cancer Research UK through Justgiving, we’ll return £10 of your entry fee to you.’

To raise funds, all you need to do is set up a Justgiving page (which you will prompted on as an option within the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest  entry process). If you have a Justgiving page already, you can link this as part of the process. Raise £100 through this portal and after the event ,we will credit you back a Tenner. Simples! (Please note that refunds will only be made for those raising money for Cancer Research UK.)

For support on fundraising or to find out more about their live-saving work, please visit the Cancer Research UK website. Alternatively, you can contact the Cancer Research UK Sports Team on, or by calling the Cancer Research UK Hotline on  0871 641 2403 .
