Kickstart 2018 and sign up to Race For Life Torbay

TORBAY women are invited to kickstart the New Year by signing up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

To help celebrate its return, this January (1-31 January), Torbay women are being offered 30% off entry fees for Race for Life 5k.

Every day, 90 people are diagnosed with cancer in the South West*. That’s why the charity is urging women of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities to enter the Race for Life 5k at the Torbay Velopark, Paignton on Sunday 20 May. By signing up to Race for Life, you can make a real difference in the fight against cancer. Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

Amy Salmon, Cancer Research UK’s Devon and Cornwall Event Manager, said: “We can’t wait to bring Race for Life back to Torbay, with a new version of the running route, which will include the beautiful Clennon Lakes. January is the perfect time for women in Devon to commit to getting a little more active in 2018 by signing up for Race for Life and taking on a new fitness challenge. 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. Taking part in Race for Life is a hugely moving experience. It’s a special opportunity for people to come together to remember loved ones lost to cancer or celebrate the lives of those dear to them who have survived.”
