Event details

The Sunset Run has been set up to support the work of the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre. JvGCRC is a local research centre at the forefront of the fight against cancer. Established in 2008, the Centre has pioneered innovative approaches for diagnosing cancer better, predicting how the disease will respond to therapy and for boosting the immune system to fight cancer, known as immunotherapy.

None of these breakthroughs would have been possible without our community of donors, supporters and friends. To help us continue our work, we are asking all participants to commit to raising at least £50, in addition to our small entrance fee. Groups taking part together are welcome to host a joint fundraising page and set themselves a target as a group.

Whether you’re new to running or run regularly, we’ll make sure that you feel supported throughout your training and will be in touch regularly in the run up to the event. Want more info? See our FAQs.
