Call for women to sign up to Ipswich’s Race for Life and Pretty Muddy events June 13-14
Fearsome females are being urged to get the new year off to a great start by signing up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life 2015.
According to the charity’s research, more than three people are diagnosed with cancer in the East of England every hour.
Cancer Research UK is calling on women in Ipswich to fight back against the disease by taking part in Race for Life’s 5k or 10k, or Pretty Muddy events at Trinity Park over the weekend of June 13 and 14.
Gill Burgess, Cancer Research UK’s Ipswich event manager, said: “If you’re looking for an opportunity to get a little or a lot more active in 2015, this is the time to enter to Race for Life. With fire in their bellies and trainers at the ready, we know that Ipswich ladies are up for the challenge.”
Ms Burgess said the races were non-competitive and women could walk, jog or run their way round.
