Run for the Future 2014 will take place on Sunday 14th September 2014 at 12 noon on Bristol's Durdham Downs and will be compered, once again, by BBC Bristol's popular personalities Steve Lefevre and Ali Vowles.

You can see a video of Noel Edmonds introducing Run for the Future 2014 on YouTube.

A two-week awareness campaign will be held from the 1st of September to make men in the Bristol area more aware of prostate cancer and the campaign will culminate in the Run for the Future event on the Downs.

Posters and awareness leaflets are being distributed in the city and a programme of information displays and awareness talks will take place. A media awareness campaign is also planned on television and radio in the area.

Then on Sunday September 14 everyone is invited to join in the fun run, which will kick off with music and stalls on The Downs.

Survivors of prostate cancer, people running in memory of those who have died and medical professionals will be among the hundreds of runners taking part in the event, which starts with stalls being set up at 10 am and music from 11 am and a warm-up before a mass start of runners at Noon.

Many thanks to all those who, over the last eight years, have taken part in Run for the Future - Bristol's 5k family prostate cancer "fun run" . So far you have helped us raise over £250,000 for prostate cancer research and awareness, here in Bristol.

Thanks to Run for the Future 2013 we have now raised over a quarter of a million pounds for our BUI Prostate Cancer Appeal since our launch in 2006. Money raised so far has funded Bristol based research carried out at UWE and Bristol University and helped raise the profile of Bristol Urological Institute as a major centre for the treatment and post-operative care of patients coming from, not only Bristol and Bath but from Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Celebrities Carol Vorderman and Noel Edmonds are supporting Run for the Future and help to promote this event. Carol has supported the Run since 2006 and has helped launch the Press campagn once again in 2013.

The event takes place each September and is organised by "Rotary in Bristol" to raise money to fight prostate cancer which affects the lives of over 40,000 men in the UK.
