With less than three weeks to go, organisers of the Race for Life are urging women who haven’t secured their place yet to sign up as soon as possible for the event on Sunday, June 26 at Nowton Park.

Entry for the 5km and 10km women-only events, which raise money for Cancer Research, close on June 24.

Leander Platten, event manager for Race for Life in Suffolk, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that so many women have entered Race for Life in Bury, but we still have places left so we’re urging anyone who has been thinking about it to commit and take action today.

“Taking part in Race for Life, alongside thousands of like-minded women, is incredibly motivating.

“The atmosphere at all the events is full of emotion as participants wear signs on their backs declaring their reasons for taking part.

“Many will be remembering loved ones lost to cancer or celebrating the lives of people dear to them who have survived.

“Race for Life events are not competitive. They are about an army of women crossing the finish line together in the fight against cancer.

“Whatever the distance, every step taken around the course will help bring us one step closer to the day when all cancers are cured.”

Money raised through Race for Life allows Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research, which is helping to save the lives of men, women and children across Suffolk and the entire United Kingdom.
