Organisers of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life Dundee have announced a new autumn date for the popular event.

Camperdown Park was due to host the programme, which includes Race for Life 5K, 10K and Pretty Muddy obstacle course events, on June 14.

It has now been rescheduled to August 30.

The 5K and 10K runs will start at 10am, with a Pretty Muddy kids event getting underway at 12.15pm, followed by the obstacle course challenge for teenagers and adults.

Participants who had already signed up for the Race for Life can transfer their entry to the new August date.

Entries are also open for more people to join at raceforlife.org

Lisa Adams of Cancer Research UK said: “As the coronavirus outbreak continues to unfold, we are listening to the advice and guidance of the UK Government carefully.

“While our priority is ensuring that people affected by cancer get the support and information they need during unprecedented times, we’re having to work quickly to understand the impact the pandemic will have on Cancer Research UK’s fundraising.

“As the safety of our supporters, volunteers, suppliers and staff across the hundreds of Race for Life events due to take place in 2020 is incredibly important we have made the decision to postpone the events scheduled in May, June and July including Race for Life Dundee this June.

“Since it began, Race for Life has raised over £890 million for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. We’re incredibly grateful to everyone who has taken part and hope their support will continue throughout this time.”
