Nicki Embleton, Cancer Research UK’s Nottinghamshire spokeswoman, said: “January is the perfect time to commit to getting a little more active.

“We’d love for as many people as possible to join us during our 30th year of Race for Life.

“Race for Life is a powerful way to celebrate and remember loved ones affected by cancer and to raise money for pioneering research.

“Whether people are living with cancer, taking part in honour of or in memory of a loved one with cancer or signing up to protect their own children’s future, everyone has a reason to Race for Life.

“Sadly, one in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime, but support through events like Race for Life funds ground-breaking work to see more people surviving cancer.

“For some, the Race for Life is literally a walk in the park. Slow and steady still wins. For others, it’s a jog. Others may opt to push themselves harder and take part in the 10km distance, but what is for certain is we’re looking forward to welcoming people of all ages and abilities.”
