Because AICR is the cancer research charity that funds research specifically on the links between diet, physical activity, and weight management to cancer prevention and survivorship.

Scientists estimate that about a third of the most common cancers could be prevented by eating a healthy diet, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight. We know marathon runners are committed to these goals, which makes YOU and US perfect partners.

We are thrilled to offer complimentary virtual training provided by partnering endurance coaching company, Kopf Training. The weekly training and nutrition program is geared to safely prepare our runners for race day. 

As a bonus, the first five runners to register will receive three additional benefits:


  •  A customized virtual training program
  • ‘Ask the Coach’ support via email/phone
  • Access to any scheduled runner education seminars/webinars
