Run 31 Miles in August
Run 31 Miles in August and help fund research breakthroughs.

But there is hope. Take on the Run 31 Miles in August Challenge and join us to help fund research breakthroughs and raise vital awareness.
There’s just four simple steps you need to take to get started with your challenge!

- Set up your Facebook Fundraiser and begin fundraising
- Start your challenge on 1st August 2021
Become part of Team Pancreatic Cancer UK, and together we can transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
