Get January off to a great start by making a date to join Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Corby!

As an added incentive, there’s 30% off entry fees* during January with the code RFL30.

This year, for the first time, Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children - to join the Race for Life. There are events for people of all ages and abilities taking place at West Glebe Park on Sunday, 19th May.

This January, we’re urging mums, dads, nans, grandpas, brothers, sisters, friends and workmates to show their support by joining the Race for Life.  It’s a perfect example of everyday people doing an extraordinary thing – uniting in a common cause to beat cancer.                                                

Kimberley Degville, Cancer Research UK’s Corby Event Manager, said: You don’t have to be sporty to take part.  You don’t need to train or compete against anyone else.  All you need to do is go to the Race for Life website, pick an event, sign up and then have fun raising money in whatever way you like.”

Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community, Cllr John McGhee, said:

“We are looking forward to welcoming Race For Life back to Corby after the success of last year, and even better, the whole family, including us men can join in and raise money for an excellent cause! With the current Early Bird discount and the option to complete the route in whichever way you want, there really is no better time to sign up.”

Thanks to everyone who raises money, Cancer Research UK is able to fund research to fight 200 types of cancer.  The good news is more people are surviving the disease than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.

To enter Race for Life today visit or call 0300 123 0770.
