Secure your guaranteed charity place by filling out our application form.

There is a registration fee of £20. For each charity place there is a target to raise £250 for Prostate Cancer Research Centre.

If you have your own place for this event, you can secure your place on #TeamPCRC too!  There is no fundraising requirement we just ask that you raise as much as you can to support us funding research towards a life without Prostate Cancer.

Why run for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre?

At PCRC, we focus on researching advanced prostate cancer. This is because prostate cancer is treatable when it is confined to the prostate, but once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and dangerous. We urgently need better treatments for men with this life-threatening disease, and we can only do that by funding excellent, ground-breaking research.  Every pound that you raise will help us to achieve our vision of a better future for men with prostate cancer. You can help us use science to turn hope into reality.
