Hours can vary, some roles have early starts or late finishes but we’ll always discuss your availability with you!

Be a part of something special. Support participants at one of our biggest series of fundraising events, which has raised over £500 million since it first began. Come and be a part our Race family!

With over 400 events taking place in the UK, our participants are walking, jogging and running all over cancer.
