Race for Life Aberdeen, 5k and 10k @ Kings Links
Jun 14 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm

The Race for Life 5k is a series of routes around the country that give people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities the chance to come together and show cancer who’s boss. They’re not races, or runs, and everyone wins the Race for Life (except cancer).

10k (or just over six miles) may sound a little daunting, but it’s not when you know you can do it at your own pace. If you’ve taken part in one of our 5k events before, and would like to try a longer route, or if you just think that 10k is a better distance for you, give one of our Race for Life 10k events a go.
