Starting just outside Edinburgh, you will run along the magnificent East Lothian Golf Coast before finishing in the final furlong at Musselburgh Racecourse; Scotland’s oldest racecourse. We will support you every step of the way.


Why take part for Pancreatic Cancer Action?

We need your help to make sure more people survive Pancreatic Cancer through early diagnosis.

There are almost 10,500 people newly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year in the UK. That’s 29 every day. Sadly, there are almost 9,600 pancreatic cancer deaths in the UK every year. That’s 26 every day.

We are the only UK charity that specifically focuses on improving pancreatic cancer survival rates through early diagnosis in everything we do. Quite simply, we know that pancreatic cancer can be detected early, and with your support, we will do all we can do to make sure this happens more and more.

Join team PCA and together we can save lives through early diagnosis.


£10 – Could deliver patients and families specialist information and support
