Join our Race for Wife team and support Cancer Research UK!

After the success of last year’s Race For Wife in support of Cancer Research UK’s Race For Life we’re back to do it all over again!

Last year over 100 women signed up to be part of team Now, joining celebs and Now staff in London’s Finsbury Park to run 5k and raise money to tell cancer to ‘jog on’.

This year we’ll be at the Race For Life’s 5k event at Blackheath, London on Sunday 6 July, so sign up today to come and run, walk or jog with Team Now.

Why ‘Race For Wife’ ?

The idea of Race For Wife came from Now’s Deputy Editor, Victoria Kennedy after looking through her wedding photos with a friend.

‘It made me think of my own ridiculously expensive wedding dress – now hanging forlornly in my wardrobe, when I thought, “Well WHY can’t we wear our dresses again in a way that could raise money for an amazing cause?”‘


And so Race For Wife was born.

So whether you want to dust off your wedding dress, pick up a second-hand number from your local charity shop or just pop on a veil, come and join us.

Plus we’ll be there to cheer everyone on with bubbly and cupcakes so make sure you come and find us at the Now hospitality area!
