A discount is being offered to potential runners in the upcoming Race For Life.

People in Watford are being encouraged to get January off to a great start by making a date to join Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

This year Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children - to join the Race for Life.

There are events for people of all ages and abilities taking place at Cassiobury Park, Watford on June 8 and 9.

As an added incentive, there’s 30 per cent off entry fees during January with the code RFL30.

Annie Ashwell, Cancer Research UK’s Watford Event Manager, said: “Our Race for Life events are fun, colourful, emotional and uplifting.

“They help people with cancer by raising money for research, including clinical trials which give patients in Watford access to the latest treatments.

“You don’t have to be sporty to take part.

“You don’t need to train or compete against anyone else.

“All you need to do is go to the Race for Life website, pick an event, sign up and then have fun raising money in whatever way you like.”

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is a series of 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids events which raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer by funding crucial research.

Annie added: “This January, we’re urging mums, dads, nans, grandpas, brothers, sisters, friends and workmates to show their support by joining the Race for Life.

“It’s a perfect example of everyday people doing an extraordinary thing – uniting in a common cause to beat cancer.”
