PROSTATE CANCER STATISTICS (CANCER RESEARCH UK)
A day to remember, forever.
The Race For Men family festival has something for everyone. Whether you are running or supporting, you can make a difference.
Beating Prostate Cancer together.
Through sports, music, and entertainment, Race For Men aims to increase the awareness of prostate and testicular cancer amongst men whilst raising money for related services in Salisbury.
We created Race For Men shortly after our father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. His early diagnosis and amazing treatment gave him the all-clear. This is why Race For Men stays dear to our hearts.
Race For Men is a multi-terrain race with a Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, and 3k fun run/walk.
Held at Hudson’s Field Salisbury to the North of the City: the route consists of 50% pavement/road section and then 50% off Road/Trails from Stonehenge – culminating in visiting historic Old Sarum Hill Fort and from the southern ancient ramparts, where there are fine views of the City of New Sarum, which in 2022 is 803 years after the new Cathedral moved from Old Sarum.
