The Superhero Run attracts over 2,000 Superheroes every year and thousands more spectators. Open to all runners from the age of eight upwards, the course is also suitable for disabled people in wheelchairs.
For the £20 entry fee, Run 4 Cancer supporters receive a free Superhero suit – runners can choose from Superman, Supergirl, Batman or Batgirl! What’s more, runners are able to keep their Superhero suits after the race. The event organisers hope each runner will continue their work as a Superhero after the event to help make planet Earth a better place to live!
For 2013, two distances are available – either 5Km or 10Km. Both the 5Km and 10Km circuits take in the sights of London’s Regent’s Park. The Park covers 395 acres and is the largest outdoor sports area in central London housing London’s Open Air Theatre, London Zoo and Primrose Hill.
To take part, runners are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship fund of £100. In addition to being given a free Superhero suit, each participant will receive a secure online fundraising page on Run 4 Cancer’s website to collect both donations and words of encouragement.
Run 4 Cancer, pronounced run for cancer, was set up by a group of running enthusiasts who have all lost a close friend or relative to cancer. Managed entirely on a voluntary basis, Run 4 Cancer provides short-breaks for families living with cancer and makes grants to palliative care centres. The charity also funds research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help both prevent cancer and assist in recovery post diagnosis.
