Aberystwyth Race for Life

About

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer.

It’s time to lace up your trainers, and walk, jog, or charge your way around Race for Life.

3k Race for Life - The 3k is the perfect distance (just over 2 miles) to take on as your first Race for Life challenge! It's ideal to take part in solo, as a family or group and is a fun, achievable event for everyone. There's no pressure to finish in a certain time. Run, jog or walk at your own pace, or make your way around the course however suits you to fund our life-saving cancer research.

5k Race for Life - The Aberystywth course runs along the Promenade, Marine Terrace, New Promenade and S Marine Terrace from end to end. It starts on Marine Terrace heading towards the Pier, then running along the Promenade towards the RNLI Lifeboat Station. The course then follows the national cycle path to u-turn in Maesyrafon Car Park. The course then returns down the cycle path to South Marine Terrace to return back to the finish line after doing a U turn at Constitution Hill.

10K Race for Life - 10k is a great step up from our 5k events; that's still achievable for everyone.
