The Althorp Runners

We're fun-run fundraising to fight cancer!

We are part of our pub team 'The Althorp Runners' of about 20 (not running together obvs!) raising money for Cancer Research UK.
We are led by Nicola who is one of a few pushing through injury to give the finger and both feet to cancer!

Recently a number of us have been affected directly by cancer inc. our dearest TLJ The Lovely Julia - keep strong darling, we are all loving and running for you!


Please help us reach our target and bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

2020 and now '21 has been an incredibly difficult year for everyone. Cancer Research UK funds around 50% of all cancer research here in the UK. But COVID-19 is threatening to severely impact cancer research and make Cancer Research UK’s ambition of improving cancer survival to 3 in 4 by 2034 more difficult.

Donating through my profile our simple and secure – please donate to help us hit my fundraising target and help beat cancer.

Thank you to our Supporters
