Women from across the district are being urged to sign up for this year’s Race for Life.

Anyone who signs up in January for the 5K or 10K events around Verulamium Park will get 30 per cent off entry fees, which go towards Cancer Research UK.

The charity’s Herts event manager Courtney Culverhouse said: “For those who need some extra encouragement to get moving, Race for Life offers the ultimate motivation. That’s because by taking part and raising money, participants will be helping to fund vital cancer research. It’s time to mark the New Year and make a resolution to remember.”

Cancer Research UK senior science communications officer Dr Áine McCarthy said signing up is a great opportunity for women looking to kick-start a healthier lifestyle: “Being regularly active has long-term health benefits, as research shows that even moderate physical activity can help reduce the risk of cancer.”

Sign up here or call 0300 123 0770.
