Join Team Can Prevent for the 2018 Asics Greater Manchester Marathon and help us to continue our groundbreaking research. One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, but with your help, we’ll be one step closer to preventing cancer and the misery it causes.

Registration is free but in order to secure one of our charity places we ask that you raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid). We’ll be here to support you along the way and have lots of fundraising ideas and tips to help make it easier!

If you’re interested in a charity place with us, please submit a registration form.

What do we offer?

  • An exclusive World Cancer Research Fund running vest
  • A dedicated Events Team to help support you along the way
  • Materials for friends and family to create their own cheering point to boost you round the course!

Got your own place?

If you've managed to secure a place through the public entry system but want to help us prevent cancer, please get in touch. Team Can Prevent would love to welcome you – you’ll have all the benefits and support, and there'll be no minimum fundraising target. Just raise as much as you can and have fun!
