“I want to help others that may be facing into or going through something similar to me. I want to show them what’s possible after treatment. I want them to know that someone is always thinking about you and you are never on your own.”

Register to run for the Irish Cancer Society

Simply complete our online registration form to receive your free fundraising pack. There is no minimum sponsorship amount that you need to raise for an Irish marathon, we just ask you to raise as much sponsorship as you can. 

Please Note: You must enter your chosen event as well as registering with us. Please ensure you also go to the appropriate event website to register with them and to receive relevant event information and materials such as race numbers. Registering with the Irish Cancer Society does not register you for your chosen event but does allow us to help support your fundraising!
