Run the month this October
Run the Month is a virtual challenge for runners everywhere. Throughout October, run 50 miles your way, whether it’s a mile at a time or two marathons in the month. Sign up and help us beat prostate cancer - the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK.
Take on the challenge alone or in a team, track and share your progress using Strava. Watch the miles build up and the donations rush in. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a lockdown rookie, Run the Month this October and help save men’s lives.
The funds you raise by taking part in Run the Month will support men like Kevin.
In November 2014, father-of-three Kevin was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He was told he had as little as two years to live.
Almost six years later, Kevin has defied his prognosis and is still going strong, dedicating his time to three of his biggest passions – family, fundraising and running.
The 55-year-old has tackled some of the world’s most gruelling ultra-marathons, clocking up tens of thousands of miles, and has been pounding the pavements, trails and hills every day since lockdown began.
While conquering marathons might be out of reach for many of us, Kevin has a simple message: “In running they say: ‘it’s better to start and not finish than never start at all.’ The hardest part is putting your foot on the start line, whatever that start line may be. So, what's stopping you?”
