Event day timetable
What will happen at your Race for Life event
You’ll feel the unique Race for Life atmosphere from the moment you arrive at your event. If it's your first event, or it's been a while since you've taken part, we've put together an approximate schedule of what to expect on the day. Starting times vary so please check your Race for Life event page for the exact start time.

Arrival – one hour before start
The fun begins as you and other Race for Life participants arrive. There’s no need to check-in on the day – just make your way towards the stage area where you’ll see participants and supporters, helping each other pin on their running numbers and back signs. There’s excitement in the air as the music gets everyone in the mood and last-minute finishing touches are made to special Race for Life outfits. This is the perfect opportunity to drop off any quality items you no longer want at the Donation Station marquee at your event, which we can then sell in our charity shops.

Welcome from the Race for Life team – 30 minutes before start
Your Race for Life event organiser speaks about Cancer Research UK and why we need your support to continue our life-saving work. We also hold a collective moment of silence for loved ones lost to cancer.

Warm-up – 20 minutes before start
You can take part in a light aerobic warm-up with all the other participants to get those muscles ready for your event.

Take your places – 10 minutes before start
You make your way to the walkers', joggers' or runners' flags, depending on whether you want to walk, jog or run the 5k course.

Start time
The starting signal goes and you’re off with friends and family gathered round to cheer you on.

Runners at the finish – 20-45 minutes after start time
Participants who have chosen to run the course start coming through the finish line.

Joggers at the finish – 45 minutes to 1 hour after start time
Participants who have chosen to jog the course start to cross the finish line.

Walkers at the finish – 1-1 ½ hours after start time
Participants who have chosen to walk the course start coming through the finish line.

Celebration – after your event
Once you've crossed the finish line, you will receive a Race for Life medal, goody bag and a bottle of water from one of our volunteers, as a thank-you for taking part. Wear your medal with pride and stick around for live music and family activities at selected Marketplace events or you can celebrate with friends and family with a picnic.

What to bring with you
Things you'll need at your Race for Life event
On the day of your event, you will need to bring a few things with you:
