tough10_logoCancer Research UK are excited to announce a brand new series of 10k running events taking place across some of the UKs most challenging terrain.  The adrenaline packed ‘Tough 10’ events promise to push endurance levels to the limit as participant’s brave the elements.

Runners face nature’s forces alone in this no obstacles challenge. The events are all about credible running and will pitch participants against thigh-burning hills, muddy declines and uneven rocky landscape. Every hill conquered and every penny raised goes towards pioneering research, helping people affected by cancer right now.

With three different levels of difficulty (‘tough’, ‘tougher’ and ‘toughest’), participants can choose their ultimate 10k running challenge from 10 breathtaking locations.

The first event at Hadleigh Park in Essex sold out and saw hundreds of runners taking on the rocky inclines of the Olympic mountain bike course and raising thousands of pounds for life-saving research.

Clive Sanders, Head of Events at Cancer Research UK said

“we are extremely excited to be launching a new series of running events in some of the most iconic locations across the country. With three levels of challenge there is something for everyone, from regular trail runners to first timers. These are definitely not events to be aiming for a new PB.  This will be a tough challenge to take on whilst raising money for the vital work that Cancer Research UK scientists are carrying out right now in the U.K.”


Get tough on cancer and tackle the terrain this autumn. Tough 10 Staffordshire is happening on Saturday 19th November.
