runners at Ovarian Cancer Run

Ovarian Cancer Walk/Run London

There's a great chance to give a little back in London in October by running or walking 5K or 10K at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Saturday 14 October is your chance to raise awareness, fund research and save lives, and to help improve the lives of more than 25,000 women across the UK who are living with ovarian cancer. 11 women die every day from ovarian cancer and ovarian cancer faces chronic underfunding compared to other cancers.

You can bring the kids with a registration fee of £12.50 for adults and £5 for children or you can make a day of it, bring a group of friends together and enter as a team. For teams of five or more, the fifth member goes free.

Both events start at 11.00am and all ages and abilities are more than welcome with fully accessible routes and no steps. You'll get a free T-shirt, medal and bottle of water and all you have to do is raise a minimum of £100 per adult.

It's sure to be a fun day out and together we can make sure that women have the best chance of survival.


If you can't make it to the capital, you can still help by choosing your own location - find out more at our Do your own The Ovarian Cancer Walk|Run page.
