TIME is running out for those wanting to sign up for this year’s Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life at Scolton Manor.

Women have just over a week to register with entry closing at midnight on Friday, June 27.

Organisers are encouraging mums, daughters, grans, sisters, friends and workmates who want to take part in the 5k women-only event to sign up as soon as possible at raceforlife.org.

Sarah Pope Marketing Manager for Wales’ Race for Life, said: “We are very grateful to the women who have already entered Race for Life in Haverfordwest. But we still have places left so we are urging women to sign up as soon as possible.”

In 2013, 1,351 women took part in Race for Life in Haverfordwest, and helped raise an incredible £73,500,00 for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. This year, the charity hopes to raise even more to help beat cancer.

Sarah continued: “Race for Life is not competitive and it’s not about being fit or fast. It’s about thousands of women coming together to show cancer who’s boss.”

Women can boost their contribution to Cancer Research UK’s work by doing a ‘wardrobe work-out’ before their event. The charity is encouraging them to sort out and bag up hidden treasures such as quality clothes, books and accessories they no longer use and take them to the Donation Station at Race for Life. Each bag of goods could help raise up to £30 for groundbreaking research.

To enter Race for Life, visit www.raceforlife.org or call 0845 600 6050.
