The Children’s Cancer Run has delighted children and families from across the North East and Cumbria for almost 40 years.

Our annual family fun run is a special family day out with a difference – you can have fun while making life better for children with cancer by raising sponsorship or making a donation.

In 2019 we welcomed 9,000 runners and over 80 schools to Newcastle Racecourse, making it our biggest and best run yet. We are working hard to plan for an equally special run this year. It may look slightly different in order to meet the current guidance from Public Health England – our first priority is always the safety of our runners, spectators, volunteers and staff.

We will be opening entries, and sharing more information about how the event will look, in July – please come back then to find out more.

Entries open in July 2021.

Thank you for the ongoing support of our corporate supporters:

We are just so, so proud to be associated with the Children’s Cancer Run. It is a lovely thing for us and it makes us feel fantastic to be making a contribution.”

Richard Hutton, Finance Director of Greggs.
