Official Charity Partner

Cancer Research UK is the official charity partner of the inaugural London Summer Run, and has been the official charity of the London Winter Run since its first year in 2015.

Together, we have raised nearly £4 million to help fund life-saving cancer research. Cancer Research UK has been at the heart of the progress that has already seen survival in the UK double in the last 40 years. Progress we’ve helped make possible.

The last year has been a difficult time for everyone. 1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime. Cancer Research UK funds nearly half of all the publicly funded cancer research here in the UK. COVID-19 has slowed them down. But they will never stop.

To save lives tomorrow, they need your help today. Cancer Research UK will never stop working to make progress for people affected by cancer. Take part in this year’s Cancer Research UK London Summer Run and raise money for life-saving research. Together we will beat cancer.



Already signed up?

Congratulations! You’re signed up and taking part in the Cancer Research UK London Summer Run 2021. You’re doing something amazing by running 10k, but why not do it to help beat cancer at the same time?

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



It costs around £200 to fund Cancer Research UK’s team of 10 cancer nurses for 1 hour. The expert team of nurses are on hand to offer confidential support and guidance to people affected by cancer.
