As official race charity, Rosemere Cancer Foundation receives £1 for every runner that crosses the start line from the event’s organisers, the Central Lancs Running & Triathlon Club (CLAN).
CLAN also donates £10 to the charity for every race marshal it supplies. In addition, it gives Rosemere Cancer Foundation a number of free race places for runners willing to be sponsored to take part in Rosemere’s name and raise at least £50 for the charity.
Rosemere Cancer Foundation’s central area fundraising co-ordinator, Rebecca Arestidou, said: “We are delighted to once again be the City of Preston Road Race’s official race charity for 2020. The race is a long established event, popular among both the cream of local club athletes and also, runners who run to support not just us but various good causes.”
