Every day, 80 people in London are diagnosed with cancer. Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life raises millions of pounds for life-saving research into all types of cancer, through its 5k, 10k and Pretty Muddy events happening all over the capital this summer.

Could you set up a team of 10 for us, in return for one free entry and some free goodies for your team members? Whatever shape you’re in you’ll be in good company, because women and girls of all ages and abilities will be walking, jogging or running to help beat cancer sooner. Once you have your team of 10 together, please email

Or, of course, you can go it alone and join the thousands of other women taking part.

For more information, visit to set up a JustGiving page, get sponsorship and fundraising tips and find a training plan to suit you and your team.

Hell hath no fury like a woman in pink!
