Go Radio are thrilled to support the Beatson Cancer Charity as they go virtual with their 7th annual Off the Beatson Track in August. After careful deliberation, the charity has decided to host the mass participation event online and change to a virtual challenge to prioritise the health and safety of the community during this time. Let’s turn villages, towns and the city yellow on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd of August.

Given the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the charity was keen to find a way to offer 2 DAYS of opportunities to keep the much-loved experience in the calendar and a way to continue raising funds for cancer research and its services.
The flagship event, a 10k (6.5miles) challenge is suitable for all ages and mobility and is guaranteed a great ‘feel-good’ event.  This year should be no different with Beatson Cancer Charity hoping that supporters will continue their celebration with Off the Beatson Track. Families can still take part but by staying local instead of the usual mass gathering city loop.  Everyone can create their own route and participate in their own way.  It’s entirely up to you!  All we ask is that you join in, wear yellow and enjoy yourself!  

Adult entry fees (FREE for kids) will allow participants to gain exclusive access to pre-recorded entertainment, a specially prepared playlist and celebrity commentary via the new Off the Beatson Track podcast.Designed to help everyone on their way. 

Martin Cawley, CEO of Beatson Cancer Charity is enthusiastic about this year’s change in format stating,
We wanted to find a way to continue the celebration of Off the Beatson Track during August whilst respecting social distancing arrangements.  So, we are offering a few more creative ways to continue participation and enjoyment. I hope many take part with their family and friends. Our work to provide better, more effective support to people during their cancer journey relies so much on public support.  We hope many will join us in doubling the impact of last year’s campaign by reaching our goal of more than 2,500 participants this year.”

Taking part in the 7th annual Off The Beatson Track will be our very own Crofty, Adele and Grado from the the Go Breakfast team, if you’d like to sign up, head to www.beatsoncancercharity.org/otbt. All participants will receive a t-shirt and specially designed medal.

Good Luck!
