Windsor Enclosure    Ascot Race Course

Thank You 

Well done to our fantastic teams who this year walked in blazing heat and have raised £68,887.06.  Thank you to everyone who has walked, donated, volunteered and supported Relay For Life Ascot in 2018 you are all amazing.

Relay For Life is a unique community event, teams fundraise all year and over the Relay weekend come together to celebrate their efforts in a 24 hour celebration.  As well as raising money for Cancer Research UK, Relay celebrates cancer survivors, promotes cancer awareness and remembers those lost to cancer.

Relay began in 1985 when Dr. Gordon "Gordy" Klatt walked and ran for 24 hours around a track in Tacoma, Washington, raising money for the American Cancer Society. Today there are Relays in 26 countries around the world with 4 million people fundraising to beat cancer.  

This is our 11th Relay and in the past ten years we have raised the awesome sum of £1024,895.38 for Cancer Research UK.  Why not join the fun as we start to raise our second million.

Anyone can Relay whatever their age or fitness level. At Ascot we have team members from a few weeks old to people in their 80s.

Team members take it in turns to walk around the track while all around them a party is in full swing. The aim is to have at least one member of each team on the track for the whole 24 hours. During the weekend there is free entertainment and the opportunity to take part in games, quizzes, competitions plus various novelty laps. 

Our theme this year is Back to School so why not dig out your old school tie and make sure your name is on the Ascot Relay register.  Contact us for more details.  To register simply click here.

We are very pleased and extremely proud that Ascot Relay For Life was awarded The Queen's Award For Voluntary Service in 2017.  This is the MBE for voluntary groups and the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK.


Corporate Support

We couldn't run Relay without volunteers so if you are interested in helping out over the Relay weekend - even if just for a few hours, please let us know. You could be helping with parking, serving teas and coffees, helping in the Candle of Hope tent, or with children's activities. Or you could help with setting up and clearing down.

Sponsors are an important part of Relay. Sponsorship of items such as signs, wristbands, medals, etc means that all money made by teams can go to CRUK without being used for event expenses. We also like to hear from companies who can donate prizes for our competitions or treats for our survivors. Visit the Corporate Support page for more information
