Those who have just started running, or are thinking about starting, often find a goal helps motivate them. For women and girls, what better target than the 5k Race for Life events that take place across the UK this summer in partnership with Tesco?
Race for Life raises funds for the work of Cancer Research UK in tackling over 200 types of cancer, affecting both men and women.
With a choice of over 235 events across the the UK, finding a convenient venue shouldn’t be too hard. Getting a group together for one of the races means you can train together as well as support each other as you complete the distance. And of course, if you’re not ready to run that far yet, walking is fine, too.
