The PFA, the FA and the Everyman Male Cancer Campaign are challenging men to get fit this summer by taking part in a new running event with a football twist

Taking place on Sunday, June 3, the run is exclusively for men and gives participants the opportunity to take part either individually or on behalf of their chosen football club to raise money for male cancer research.

Similar to the FA Cup, lower division teams will find themselves pitted against the top Premiership clubs in the battle to see who is the fastest over 5km. At the end of the race, the winning team will be the one with the fastest average running time. Prizes will also be awarded for the fastest individuals and top fundraisers.

he event is taking place in Victoria Park, East London and all participants will be asked to pay a small registration fee and encouraged to raise £100 through sponsorship. All money raised will go to the Everyman Campaign, which funds research into testicular and prostate cancer.

A variety of professional footballers are also expected to turn up on the day, giving people the opportunity to run with some of their footballing heroes. Participants can start registering for a place from mid April on the Everyman website www.everyman-campaign.org
