Race organisers are calling on Watford woman to sign up to a charity run.

Cancer Research UK's Race for Life Pretty Muddy, 5k and 10k events are taking place on June 9-10 at Cassiobury Park and the charity is calling on Watford women to take part.

The money raised through the event goes straight to Cancer Research UK and during January, all the races have 30 per cent off entry fees.

Courtney Culverhouse, Cancer Research UK’s event manager, said: "January is the perfect time for women in Watford to commit to getting a little more active in 2018 by signing up for Race for Life and taking on a new fitness challenge.

"For those who need some extra encouragement to get moving, Race for Life offers the ultimate motivation. That’s because by taking part and raising money, participants will be helping to fund vital cancer research. It’s time to mark the New Year and make a resolution to remember.

"By joining like-minded ladies committed to the cause, local women can unite against a disease that affects us all in some way."
