ORGANISERS of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Manchester are looking for more participants.

Everybody can be part of the empowering Race for Life movement – and show support for the 41,100 people diagnosed with cancer every year in the North West.

Anyone who signs up in January can claim a special 30 per cent off the entry fee* by using the code RFLJAN30.

The Race for Life events take place at Heaton Park across the 11th and 12th July and are open to people of all ages and abilities.

Sarah Hunter, Cancer Research UK’s Event Manager for Manchester, said: “This year, our Race for Life events are open to everyone.

“We’re sending a heart-felt message to anybody who’s thought about signing up in the past but for one reason or another hasn’t got round to it. This is your year – please seize the opportunity to register in January and become part of the Race for Life community.

She added: “Our events are fun, colourful, emotional and uplifting. Participants take part at their own pace – taking as much time as they like to complete the course. For some people, the Race for Life is literally a walk in the park. For others, it’s a jog or a run.

“Although ‘Race’ features in the name, our events are not competitive. Instead, ‘the Race for Life’ is about our doctors, nurses and scientists working as hard and fast as possible to help more people survive.”
