Cancer Research – Winter Run

Cancer Research – Winter Run

With the Christmas and New Year festivities finally over for another year, it’s time to blow those cobwebs away and how better to do it than to join in a Cancer Research UK Winter Run, which will be held in January and February, 2016?

The Cancer Research UK Winter Run Series is a series of 10 km. runs through the streets of Liverpool, London and Manchester. Following the first year, when 15,000 people conquered the cold, 2016 is set to become even better with polar bear hugs at the finishes, a snow zone on the courses, as well as other wintery excitement along the way.

The first Winter Run will go through the streets of central Liverpool on 17th January, passing the Royal Liver Building and Albert Dock along the way.  The second will be run in London on 31st January and will take in Trafalgar Square and St. Paul’s Cathedral, while the third and final Winter Run will take place on 28th February, in and around the Etihad Campus in Manchester.

If these locations are too far away for you, then don’t despair – following on from the success of the first Winter Runs, Cancer Research has organised a new series of runs for 2016 – The Snowflake Run Series. This is a series of 10 km. runs through Stoke, Southampton, Edinburgh and Plymouth and will hopefully prove to be just as popular as the Winter Runs.

We all know that exercising through the winter is never easy – whether it’s the colder weather or the shorter days, the lure of the duvet and warmth of our cosy homes makes it much harder to drum up the enthusiasm for exercise.  Signing up for either the Cancer Research UK Winter Run or Snowflake Run Series will give you something to train for and help motivate you through the dark winter months.

So, if you fancy braving the elements and raising vital funds to help beat cancer at the same time, then click here for more information about the individual events and how to enter.

Good luck!
