Cheshire’s Race for Life offers 30% discount for January sign ups

By on January 10, 2018

Cheshire women are being encouraged to kick-start the New Year by signing up now to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

This January (1-31 January), Cheshire women are being offered 30% off entry fees for Race for Life 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Pretty Muddy Kids, Half Marathon and Hike events

Every day, 110 people are diagnosed with cancer in the North West.* That’s why the charity is urging women of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities to choose their event – Race for Life 5k, 10k or Pretty Muddy – and pledge to take part at Tatton Park.

The 5k and 10k events take place on Sunday 24 June and Pretty Muddy is scheduled for Saturday 23 June.

Laura Taylor, Cancer Research UK’s Cheshire Event Manager, said: “January is the perfect time for women in Cheshire to commit to getting a little more active in 2018 by signing up for Race for Life and taking on a new fitness challenge.

“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. By joining like-minded ladies committed to the cause, local women can unite against a disease that affects us all in some way.”

Laura added: “Race for Life events are non-competitive and participants can choose to walk, jog or run around the course. Whether they’re planning a 5k stroll, a 10k sprint or a muddy splash around the Pretty Muddy course, every step women take will help to support life-saving research.”

Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work relies on the public’s support. Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, the charity was able to spend over £28 million last year in the North West on some of the UK’s leading scientific and clinical research – helping more men, women and children survive.

“Pledging to take part in Race for Life is a great incentive for women to pull on their trainers and join thousands of ladies across the UK who are coming together in the fight against cancer. Money raised is helping to drive research to help beat over 200 different types of cancer – so every person, step and penny raised makes a real difference.”
