Group of students ready for runNTU 2017

runNTU 2018

Grab your running shoes and help us crack the cancer code! On Sunday 29 April are holding our annual 5 km and 1.5 km fun runs around the Clifton Campus. Last year the event attracted 500 participants made up of students, staff and friends of the University and it was a brilliant day raising money for the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre. 

All money raised from runNTU goes directly to the centre and funds life-saving research. 

The race will start at 12 pm, with registration from 10 am. The day will include musical entertainment, bouncy castles and a final presentation with prizes! Fancy dress is actively encouraged as there will be a prize for the best costume. 

Entry to the 5km event includes a chip timer and a medal at completion. You can purchase a runNTU tshirt for just £5 when you register.

There are a choice of entry options below. £5 for students, £8 for general public, or you can raise at least £50 on a just giving page and get entry to the race completely free! 

Book your place today! 

5km student entry - £5 (please have your N number ready to input)
5km general entry - £8
1.5km fun run - £4
5km charity entry - free (commit to raising £50)

Want to get involved but don't fancy running?

There are plenty of other ways you can join in the fun of runNTU without having to do any of the running. We are looking for volunteers to help with the running of the event. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact 

Together we can crack the cancer code.
