If mud’s not for you, then Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life family of events also includes the standard 5k course, which thousands of women will take on at the same venue on Sunday, May 8.

Jennifer Ward, Cancer Research UK’s Warrington’s Event Manager, said: ‘We’re so excited about launching Race for Life Pretty Muddy in Warrington. The event is taking place in the town for the first time and we’re calling on local ladies to muck in to make it a huge success. We’ve no doubt that they’ve got the fighting spirit to get down and dirty in the bid to beat cancer sooner.

“Race for Life events are not competitive. They are not about being fit or fast. Women can complete the Pretty Muddy course at their own pace, climbing, jumping, walking and laughing their way around. It’s about an army of women coming together in the fight against cancer.’

Money raised through Race for Life allows Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research which is helping to save the lives of men, women and children across the North West and the UK.

Jen continued: “We’re calling on the brave ladies of Warrington and all across Cheshire to harness their fighting spirit once more and really show cancer who’s boss.

‘Our participants make Race for Life a truly uplifting, inspiring experience. That’s why we’re calling on women of all ages to sign up now to their event in Warrington and pledge to stand together, shoulder to shoulder, on the front line against cancer. Together, we can unleash a powerful fighting spirit to stop cancer in its tracks.”
