Ladies are urged to race for life
LACE up those trainers and get ready to pound the streets of Peterborough - for there are still places left in this year’s Race for Life.
Women in the city are being invited to join forces and help beat cancer with this year’s event.
The 5km event raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK.
So whether people walk, jog or run, they can join friends, family and colleagues and become part of the biggest female-only team in the UK.
This year, Race for Life in Peterborough will take place on June 29 and June 30, at 7.30pm, at Ferry Meadows Country Park, off Oundle Road in Orton Waterville.
Last year 5,040 women walked, jogged or ran the event which took place for the 13th time in the town and raised an incredible £234,701 over the two evenings. This year, organisers are encouraging 5,100 women to put their best feet forward and raise £226,000. Peterborough participants will be part of a total of 700,000 women taking part in more than 230 events across the UK between May and July, raising £60 million.
