Ultra Events supporting Cancer Research UK

Working With Cancer Research UK

Ultra Events have been supporting Cancer Research UK since 2013, and to date, have raised millions to help fund vital research into over 200 different types of cancer. This incredible support helps Cancer Research UK to fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of cancer.

We are really proud of the partnership with Ultra Events, and incredibly grateful to the team and all of the amazing participants for their continued support, and helping in the fight against cancer.

We have a dedicated team in place to support Ultra Events participants with their fundraising throughout their Ultra Events journey. Please get in touch with one of the team regarding any fundraising related queries, and we will be more than happy to help!

Together we will beat cancer
