Take On A Triple Cancer Research UK Challenge This Summer

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Cancer Research UK.

Fancy a challenge this summer? Why not make it a triple one — get fit, have fun and raise money for charity. London's playing host to a ton of events for Cancer Research UK over the next few months — why not sign up to join the fun?

Whether you're up for a 5k Race for Life, think you could push yourself further to finish the 10k, or even want to get a bit messy with the 5k Pretty Muddy event — an obstacle course with added mud —  there is something for all.

Well, for all women that is, as the Race for Life runs are a female-only affair —men are of course welcome to take on a volunteer role or cheer on the side-lines/be ready with cake at the end.

Last year in Greater London, Cancer Research UK spent over £129m on some of the UK's leading scientific and clinical research.

You could help fund their ground-breaking work, as money raised from all of the Race for Life events goes towards preventing, diagnosing and treating all 200 types of cancer — a worthy cause if ever we saw one.

The best thing is that the events are non-competitive — whether you want to run, walk or skip, it's all about the taking part.

If you're after a challenge with a difference, why not give Pretty Muddy a go? It's a series of very messy obstacles to climb over and under, taking place in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 10 September. You'll need a shower after this one, but it's guaranteed to be a laugh.

If you prefer your challenge without the mud, there are plenty of 5 and 10k Race for Life taking place in parks all over the city — from Blackheath to Hyde Park, Clapham Common to Hampstead, London is well-covered.

Get a group together — friends, mums, aunties and grandmas - or simply go it alone and make  friends on the day, and get set for an epic summer challenge.

Check out the upcoming events, and sign up now for Race for Life and Pretty Muddy.
