Milton Keynes residents invited to sign up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life

    Milton Keynes residents are being invited to sign up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

    Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is returning to Milton Keynes and organisers are giving anyone who joins between Wednesday 22nd March and Sunday 30th April 30% cent off the entry fee as part of a special sale by using the code SPRING30. 

    Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with headline sponsor Standard Life, includes 3k, 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids events.

    These events raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer by funding crucial research.

    The Race for Life events take place at Willen Lake on Sunday 11th June are open to people of all ages and abilities. 

    Women, men and children can choose from 5k and 10k events.

    Karen Miller, Race for Life spokesperson for Milton Keynes, said:  “We’d love for as many people as possible across Milton Keynes to join us during our 30th year of Race for Life. 

    “Spring is an ideal time to commit to getting a little more active. Sadly, cancer affects all of us in some way. 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. So we’re asking people across Milton Keynes: “Who will you Race for?”     

    “Our Race for Life events are open to all. For some people, 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, taking up the challenge of the 10K distance.  

    “But what is for certain is we’re looking forward to welcoming people of all ages and abilities.” 

    Money raised at Race for Life enables scientists to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer - helping to save more lives. 

    Chief executive of Standard Life, part of Phoenix Group, Andy Curran, said: “We are extremely proud to have been chosen as the headline sponsor of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life. This sponsorship will help encourage participation and raise funds for life-saving research to help beat cancer.”
