Feather boas, fishnets, wigs and high heels are set to make an appearance in a half marathon ‘drag’ race on August 18.

The 13 mile course will start at The Grange, in Thurston, and finish at the Moreton Hall Health Club, in Mount Road.

Entry is free but participants are asked to collect their own sponsors.

The event is part of Judith’s 50/50 fund-raising campaign in memory of swimming and fitness instructor Judith Lindley-Neilson, who worked at the health club and died aged 49 following a two year battle with eye cancer.

The campaign has already raised thousands of pounds for Judith’s two favourite charities, WaterAid and the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Sponsorship forms are available from the Moreton Hall Health Club reception.
