Terry Fox Run UK 2021
Help us reach the finishing line. Join us in the 'Marathon of Hope'.
Last year we joined runners from all over the world in virtual Terry Fox Runs to celebrate 40 years of the 'Marathon of Hope', and to raise funds for our cancer research.
This year we are excited to take part together for the first time, in memory of Terry and all he achieved. Four decades on, cancer patients need our support now more than ever.
Run with us in Battersea Park on 2 October 2021, or run, walk or cycle in your local area any distance to help us transform the future of cancer treatment. Let’s finish cancer together.

Living through the coronavirus pandemic has presented challenges for us all, not least for people living with cancer.
Canadian hero Terry Fox knew about challenges and how to overcome them.
Terry lost his leg to osteogenic sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. 40 years ago he ran 3,339 miles over 143 days on one leg to raise awareness and money for cancer research. His dream to run across Canada was cut short after his cancer spread to his lungs and he died aged 22.
Terry’s ‘Marathon of Hope’ continues to inspire people in Canada and beyond to raise money for cancer research. So far over £500million has been raised in Terry’s name in runs across the world.
The event is free to enter, non-competitive and open to all. We just ask you to raise as much as you can. All funds raised in Terry Fox Run UK will support our work (there is no minimum fundraising target).
