Run the Nations 2024

224 Miles | 16 Stages | 1 Goal

Why is James Running The Nations?

Every 14 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with a form of blood cancer, with four children diagnosed every day.

Due to Cure Leukaemia’s rapidly expanding network of Research Nurses who enable pioneering clinical trials across the UK, James is having to up his game this year with more miles and more locations!

Run The Nations aims to raise £100,000 to fund specialist research nurses to enable blood cancer patients to access potentially life changing therapies, improving outcomes for patients with blood cancer throughout the UK. 

What is Run The Nations?

Formerly known as the Tour of the TAP, Cure Leukaemia Chief Executive James McLaughlin is back for his biggest challenge to date in Blood Cancer Awareness Month this September! With just a minor distance increase of 80% from his 2023 feat.

James will be tackling a gruelling 224 miles across 16 locations across the UK – an average of 14 miles per location, highlighting that every 14 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a form of blood cancer.
