Event details

Want to do something fun for cancer research, potentially in fancy dress?

runNTU is back for 2018, to raise money for the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre. Registration is now open for the 5km and 1.5km fun run around Clifton Campus. Last year the event attracted 300 participants, made up of students, staff and friends of NTU.

The event's aim is to raise money for life saving cancer research - and it costs just £5 for students! Alternatively, if you commit to raising £50 or over by Wednesday 25 April you get your entry completely free!

The race will start at 12 pm on Sunday 29 April, with registration open from 10 am. The day will include:

  • Musical entertainment
  • Bouncy castles
  • Warm up routine with NTU Sport
  • Medals at the finish line
  • Final presentation with prizes

Fancy dress is actively encouraged as there will be a prize for best costume!

Entry to the 5km event includes a chip timer, and you can preorder a t-shirt when you register. Medals are provided for everyone who completes both races!

Book your place today!
