BATTLE CANCER SCOTLAND

Unleash Your Inner Warrior and Join the Battle Against Cancer!

Battle Cancer Scotland is more than just a fitness challenge, it's a movement to make a difference. Join forces with your mates and form a team of four or two to compete in 5 intense, 10-minute workouts. Put your strength, endurance, and resolve to the test and raise funds for the cancer charity of your choice.

For 2.5 hours, you'll push yourself to the limit and show the world what you're made of. With every rep, every sweat-drenched step, and every bead of determination, you'll be making a powerful statement of hope and support.


And with every £ you raise, you'll not only be funding life-saving research and helping those affected by cancer, but supercharging your score.


So gather your team, choose your charity, and get ready to Battle Cancer Scotland! Sign up today and let's take on cancer together.
