It’s easy to join Team WCRF and in return we offer full support with training and nutritional advice, a runner’s kit containing a unique running vest, a fund-raising pack and a personalised online sponsorship page.

We also offer a pasta party the day before the race and a post-race reception with a free massage and shower.

Scientists estimate about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented by following a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight.

So not only will taking part in the London Marathon help you get into the kind of habits that can reduce your cancer risk, but the money raised will help us continue to fund our research and education programmes on cancer prevention.
