Cancer Survivors are the most important people at Relay.
That is why they are our Guests of Honour.
We want to salute their courageous journey with cancer and offer them a very special treat –
a day of fun and togetherness. All for free!
We invite them to celebrate the amazing work being carried out by Cancer Research UK
and everyone else involved in beating cancer sooner.
Who are our
Guests of Honour?
Anyone who has ever been told
“You have cancer …”
Anyone who has gone through cancer treatment in the past,
or is going through one now.
We call them Cancer Survivors.
They are women and men of all ages, as well as children.
A day to remember!
Your day as our Guest of Honour (GoH) starts with a Champagne reception. At midday you kick off our 24h Relay! You will have the honour of leading the first lap and all our fundraisers – we call it the Survivors' Lap of Honour.
In the afternoon, following a light lunch, you can participate in as many or as few GoH activities as you choose. The day will be full of fun and activities. We celebrate those living longer after cancer treatment, and in the evening, we will have a beautiful Candle of Hope ceremony, remembering those who we have sadly lost to cancer.
You can stay with us just for a while, the whole day or you can even camp with us overnight.
How to join

We want to recognise your courageous journey with cancer and offer you all this free of charge!
We don’t expect you to do any fundraising – just turn up and enjoy the day. Feel free to bring along someone who has supported you through your illness.
This year we want to invite more Guests of Honour than ever before, so please join us! You will have an unforgettable experience!
