Cancer Research 10K Autumn 2009 – start training now!

Running to beat Cancer – how far can you go?

Run 10K in Autumn 09 with Cancer Research UK to help raise funds and awareness for the charity and bring them closer still to finding a cure for Cancer. If you’re already familar with Race for Life but looking for a fresh running challenge then the Cancer Research 10K could be the charity run for you.

This year, Cancer Research are hoping to bring 60,000 runners on board to have fun and get fit. With an impressive fundraising target of £6 million, Cancer Research need all the help and support that UK runners have to offer. So whether you run competitively, or just enjoy a gentle jog; sign up to one of the 43 events which will be taking place across the UK this Autumn.

Whilst Autumn 09 may seem far away now, the Leggit team recommend a minimum of 8 weeks training in the build up to a 10K so now is the perfect time to start training as the first of the Cancer Research 10K events kick off on 6th September 2009. For that extra bit of support, why not check out our FREE 10K training guides? Step by step programmes which are designed to help beginner and intermediate runners reach their 10K goals.

We always find that booking your place early in an event such as the Cancer Research 10K not only saves disappointment (as places are limited) but is also a great way of giving yourself a target or goal to train for. The running venues themselves are picturesque and should make for an enjoyable run – especially as the worst of the summer heat should be over by then! With everything from Ashton Court Mansion, to Longleat, Finsbury Park, to Delamere Forset, you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to this years running locations!

So what are you waiting for, The first lot of 10K Running events kick off in Delamere Forset, Alnwick Castle in Northumberland and Powderham Castle in Devon on 6th of September.
