Fife women fired up by the arrival of spring are being urged to channel their energy into training for Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.
Now the lighter evenings are here, and with warmer weather on its way, women of all ages, shapes and sizes have the perfect opportunity to kickstart a healthier lifestyle by preparing for their 5k or 10K Race for Life event on June 28 in Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy.
By taking on Race for Life, and encouraging their mums, daughters, sisters and friends to join them, participants can improve their fitness as well as help to raise money for life-saving research.
Angela Wilson, Cancer Research UK’s Fife event manager, said: “Race for Life events are not competitive.
“They are not about being fit or fast.
“It’s about an army of women crossing the finish line together in the fight against cancer.”
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is a women-only series of 5k and 10k events which raises millions of pounds every year to fund research to help beat 200 types of cancer.
Last year, 1,900 women took part in Race for Life in Fife and raised £120,000.
This year, organisers need 2,500 women and girls to rally together to help raise £160,000 for vital research.
