Harborough women are being urged to join a pink army running around Leicester’s Victoria Park to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The event takes place on Sunday, July 5, and registration closes on Thursday, July 2.

Organisers are encouraging mums, daughters, grannies, sisters, friends and workmates who want to take part in the 5k and 10k women-only events to sign up as soon possible at www.raceforlife.org.

Katie Martin, from Race for Life, said: “We are thrilled that so many women have entered the Race for Life event in Leicester. But we still have places left so we are urging women to sign up as soon as possible.”
