Women in Enfield are being urged to sign up for the annual Race For Life in aid of Cancer Research.

Organised by Cancer Research UK, the run will take place at Trent Park in Cockfosters Road, Enfield, on Sunday, June 15 at 11am.

Participants can run either 5km or 10km fun runs.

Felicity Stevens, Cancer Research UK’s Enfield events manager, said: “We’re calling on Enfield’s mighty mums, gutsy grans, feisty friends and go-getting girls to join our formidable army and take on cancer at this year’s Race for Life.

“We know how committed the women of Enfield can be when they really make up their minds to do something.  We want to harness that power to stop cancer in its tracks, by raising money for life-saving research.

“Race for Life is non-competitive.  It’s not about being fit or fast.  Most women are able to walk 5k in an hour while chatting and having fun. Or they can choose to jog, run or even dance around the course if they prefer.”

Last years Race for Life in Enfield saw, 3,722 women take part and raised £277,384.
