The charity is urging women of all ages, shapes and sizes to choose their event - Race for Life 5k, 10k at Victoria Park, Leicester on Sunday 9 July. Race for Life 5k, 10k at Loughborough Town Centre on Sunday 11 June or Pretty Muddy 5k or 10k at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough on Sunday 14 May.

This year a BRAND NEW 10k Pretty Muddy will also be taking place at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough.

There's no better time for ladies in the East Midlands to pull on their trainers, get a little more active and join like-minded women committed to the cause. Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to treat cancer and save more lives.

One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before. Survival rates have doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK's work has been at the heart of that progress.
