Children's Cancer Run, Carlisle

Come and join North of England Children's Cancer Research at the first ever Children's Cancer Run, Carlisle on Sunday 29th September 2019 to raise funds to help more children beat cancer.


The Children’s Cancer Run is coming to Carlisle as part of North of England Children’s Cancer Research 40th Anniversary celebrations. The Children’s Cancer Run is held annually in Newcastle and has raised over £7 million to help fund research into childhood cancers. We are now bringing the event to the North West for the first time.

The Children’s Cancer Run offers a great day out for all of the family. With one, three or five mile cross-country routes to choose from we have something for all ages and abilities. All of our runners will receive a limited edition medal and a snack box to celebrate their achievement. All children aged 16 years and under will also receive a limited edition Children’s Cancer Run t-shirt.

Join us in our event village before and after your run to enjoy:

Live music
CFM Roadshow
Fairground rides

Food stalls
Much more….
