Not too late to sign up for Race for Life


Women in Eastbourne are being urged to grab their last chance to enter Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life at Eastbourne Sports Park as there are just two weeks left until registration closes.

Entry closes on June 20 and organisers are encouraging mums, daughters, grannies, sisters, friends and workmates who want to take part in the 5k and 10k women-only events to sign up as soon as possible at

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is an inspiring women-only series of 5k, 10k and Pretty Muddy events which raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer sooner.

Fiona Miller, event manager for Race for Life in Eastbourne, said, “We are very grateful to the women who have already entered Race for Life in Eastbourne. But we still have places left so we are urging women to sign up as soon as possible.”

Last year, 2,214 women took part in Race for Life in Eastbourne and raised a fantastic £110,658.00. This year, organisers need as many women and girls as possible to take part and help raise even more funds for vital research.

By raising money through Race for Life, people in the town are helping Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists make advances in research which will help more men, women and children survive. Women of all shapes, sizes, ages and levels of fitness take part in Race for Life. They come from different backgrounds and walks of life but they are united by their absolute determination to take on the disease and beat it.

Fiona added, “Race for Life is not competitive and it’s not about being fit or fast. It’s about thousands of women coming together to show cancer who’s boss.”

Every participant receives a donation bag, along with a Gift Aid form. Just by completing the form and popping it in their bag, women can boost the value of their donation by an extra 25 per cent.
