Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of women-only events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer
Race for Life Gateshead is a 5k (or just over 3 miles) and is an achievable distance for all ages and abilities.
You can take part however you like and can choose to run, jog or walk your way around the course.
Those who jog or run Race for Life often complete the 5k course in about 30 to 45 minutes. Walkers take about an hour, but there’s no pressure to finish in a certain time. It’s all about uniting in the fight against cancer.
If you are new to running or just want to get started again, there is a training plan available on the website too.
This is thousands of women uniting with one purpose.
THIS IS BEATING CANCER.
