RACE for Life is set to return to Warrington in June to help raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Taking place in Victoria Park on Sunday, June 16, people of all ages can take part in 3k, 5k or 10k races to help raise money for life changing research.

Since it began in 1994, Race for Life has helped fund 30 years of cancer research in the UK, with Cancer Research UK raising millions of pounds every year.

“Sadly nearly one in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime but Race for Life has the power not only to transform lives, but to save them,” said Jemma Humphreys, Cancer Research UK’s spokesperson for Warrington.

“No matter how cancer affects us, life is worth racing for.”

People of all ages and abilities are welcome to take part and can even try the 5k mud-splattered obstacle course, called Pretty Muddy.

“We’d love for as many people as possible across Warrington and beyond to join us at Race for Life,” Jemma said.

“Walk, jog, run or take on the course however it suits best. It’s a chance to feel the power of moving together with fellow Race for Lifers and have fun with it.”

Anyone who signs up to take part between Monday, March 18 and Monday, April 29 can claim 30 per cent off the entry fee using the code 24SPRING.

Last year Race for Life raised £33 million to help continue cancer research work across the country, which goes towards developing radiotherapy and benefits more than 130,000 people with cancer every year.

“We are incredibly proud to continue as headline sponsor for Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, with the opportunity to encourage participation across the country,” said Andy Curran, chief executive of Standard Life.

“By working to raise funds for life-saving research, we can move towards a future where people live longer and healthier lives, free from the fear of cancer.”
