Cassiobury Park was turned pink this weekend as thousands of women took part in the Race for Life.

Women of all ages got their trainers on to raise money for Cancer Research UK on Sunday in one of the most successful charity events held in Watford.

Watford Observer:

The runners - kids and adults alike - donned t-shirts with the slogan ‘cancer, we’re coming to get you’, while crowds lined the course to cheer on the participants.

Some tackled the 5km run in pink fancy dress, including bunny ears, top hats, flower boas, tutus and fairy wings.

Others brought their pets along for the day, with pooches sporting their own pink t-shirts for the cause.
