Selby Three Swans Sportive

Selby, North Yorks


Update 7 July 2020. 

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Yorkshire Cancer Research has taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Selby Three Swans Sportive, due to take place on Sunday, 6th September. Read the full update.

Let’s do this for Yorkshire!

In Yorkshire, 594 people a week receive a cancer diagnosis. When you fundraise for Yorkshire Cancer Research, you fund research to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer in Yorkshire.

Selby Three Swans Sportive

In 2019, more than 1,000 riders took part in the Selby Three Swans Sportive helping to raise over £36,453 for projects across Yorkshire. In 2020, we’re looking to make this charity sportive even bigger! With a choice of 30, 63 and 102 miles there’s something for everyone whether you’re a regular cyclist, getting on a bike for the first time, a family looking for their next challenge, or you’re ready to break through that 100-mile barrier!

Your entry fee includes a finisher’s memento, chip timing with immediate results and refreshments along the way. You’ll also be able to enjoy food, entertainment and a massage when you finish at our event village in front of Selby Abbey.

Supporting Yorkshire Cancer Research

“We received brilliant support at St James’s in Leeds. I decided I wanted to give something back for the sake of others facing cancer. Since then, my wife Bev has been gaining strength so we decided to do something together to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.”

Fundraising for Yorkshire Cancer Research

Every year, the Selby Three Swans Sportive helps fund projects right across Yorkshire to prevent cancer and increase survival. We couldn’t do this work without your help and would love you to join our fundraising team and collect sponsorship when taking part. We don’t ask for a minimum sponsorship amount, but we’ll support you every step of the way. For more information on how your money helps, go to the How We Help page. 

If everyone who takes part in the Selby Three Swans Sportive raised £50, an additional £50,000 could be invested in lifesaving projects here in Yorkshire.
