Registration for St Albans’ 20th Race for Life closes this week.

Cancer Research UK are urging women to sign up for the 5k and 10k running event around Verulamium Park and raise money for the charity.

About 1,300 women have already entered the event, but there are still places left - registration is open until July 20.

Herts Race for Life event manager, Courtney Culverhouse, said: “Taking part in Race for Life is a hugely moving experience thanks to our brave army of inspirational participants.

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

“We’re calling on ladies of all ages, shapes and sizes to sign up right now and be part of a collective force of women who are united in their aim to beat cancer.”
