WOMEN in Burnley are being urged to enter this year’s Race for Life for Cancer Research UK.

The 5k race will take place at Towneley Park on Sunday, June 15, and is open to women of all ages.

Jennifer Ward, Cancer Research UK’s Burnley event manager, said: “Race for Life is not competitive it’s about thousands of women coming together in a bid to help beat cancer.

“Participants can choose to walk, jog, run or even dance their way around the course.”

Last year, 1,110 women took part in Race for Life in Burnley and raised £53,830 and this year organisers are hoping to raise £55,000. To enter visit www.raceforlife.org or call 0845 600 6050.
