The year's run is finished. Thank you to all participants! Welcome back in 2021!

Virtual Run Västerås

Lena's Run for Life (Lenas Lopp för Livet)

@lenasloppforlivet on Instagram


A fundraising event that will take place between September 1st and 3rd.

Location: Wherever you want!

Support cancer research: Run or walk for an hour!

This year Lena's Run for Life will be done in a slightly different way - virtually! The purpose is still the same, to support gynecological cancer research with an exercise effort. You are warmly welcome to participate!

The race was originally planned to take place in Västerås, Sweden. However due to Covid-19, this year it will be an online event and you are welcome to participate wherever you are in the world!


Run or walk as far as you can and like for an hour, where and when it suits you. Start from your home, take your colleagues on a lunch walk, run in the forest or somewhere else. Every kilometer results in more money to cancer research! You track your distance yourself and report it. Prizes are raffled among the participants who report their distance. All participants will receive an email on Aug 31 and Sept 4 with a link for reporting of distance.  If you signed up after Aug 28th you can also find the correct link in your email confirmation. 


Bring the whole family to a fun run for a good cause! You choose where you participate and you can do it at any time during three days: September1st to 3rd. Please follow the Public Health Agency's recommendations regarding Covid-19 and keep your distance if you participate with others. 


Remember that every cent from starting fees and sponsors goes to gynecological research, mainly ovarian cancer.
