If anyone is inspired by the effort of participants at the Virgin Money London Marathon this Sunday, people are being urged to take on their own fitness challenge by entering Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

Unlike the marathon, women signing up to Race for Life in Preston don’t need to train for months or be super fit to take part. Instead, they can participate in the 5k,10k and Pretty Muddy events at their own pace, either walking, jogging or running their way around the course.

In Preston, women of all ages and abilities can take part in Race for Life at Moor Park on Saturday 16th June (Pretty Muddy Kids & Pretty Muddy) and Sunday 17th June (5k, 10k)

And for those who want to push themselves further, but still within a supportive atmosphere, there’s the opportunity to enter Race for Life’s women-only half marathon - with seven races taking place across the UK including a new event at Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire on Sunday July 22

Sarah Hunter, Cancer Research UK’s Preston event manager, said: “Many of us watch the Virgin Money London Marathon on TV and feel hugely motivated by the inspiring stories and unwavering determination of the participants. This year, we’re encouraging women to follow the lead of the marathon runners and take on their own fitness challenge by signing up to Race for Life in Preston.

“Women of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities can take part. Whether they’re planning a 5k walk with friends, a 10k jog or the challenge of a half marathon, it’s not about being first to the finish line; it’s about coming together to beat cancer sooner.”

“By signing up to Race for Life, women across Preston will make a real difference in the fight against cancer. Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

“Taking part in Race for Life is a hugely moving experience - full of fun, emotion, tears and laughter. The passion and energy of our participants is truly inspiring as women unite to give their all to the cause. Whatever the distance - whether it’s 5k or 21k - every step participants take will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”

On Monday April 23, women in Preston are being offered £5 off entry fees for Race for Life 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Half Marathon and Hike events using the code MARA2018.
