Women get ready for Race for Life event


Mums, daughters, sisters, friends and colleagues will be lacing up their trainers this weekend to take part in Eastbourne’s annual Race for Life this weekend.

The women will be improving their fitness as well as help to raise money for Cancer Research UK to fund life-saving research.

The 5k and 10k events take place on Sunday (June 21) at Eastbourne Sports Park.

Jenny Ainsworth, Cancer Research UK’s Eastbourne event manager, said, “Race for Life events are not competitive. They are not about being fit or fast.

“It’s about an army of women crossing the finish line together in the fight against cancer. Whether you’re a running pro or novice, every step you take around the course will help bring us one step closer to the day when all cancers are cured.

“The atmosphere is incredibly supportive and with fire in their bellies and trainers at the ready, we know that Eastbourne ladies are up for the challenge.”
