Registrations for the Run 40 in February Challenge are now closed – thank you to everyone who took part!

 

Run 40 miles this February to transform the lives of those affected by pancreatic cancer.

We’re facing a pancreatic cancer emergency. It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers. Sadly, for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case.

But there is hope. Run 40 miles using the Strava app and demand a better future for those living with pancreatic cancer.

  1. Join the challenge on Strava and run 40 miles between 1st-28th February.
  2. Complete your registration here and you’ll receive a free a Pancreatic Cancer UK T-shirt! (UK residents only)
  3. Set up your fundraising page through JustGiving.
  4. Share your page with your friends, family and other networks.
  5. Complete the challenge to unlock your exclusive Pancreatic Cancer UK digital badge.

If you’d like to purchase any other running wear, you can do so from our online shop and use STRAVA10 to get 10% off!

We strongly encourage you to make the most of your challenge and set up your own fundraising page. If you decide not to, why not make a one-off donation to Pancreatic Cancer UK? Just £29 could help fund the research breakthroughs people with pancreatic cancer so desperately need.

Become part of Team Pancreatic Cancer UK, and together we can support people now, fund research, and transform the future for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.
