NEW Year’s resolutions may have waned somewhat since January...so organisers of a Preston race are urging women to sign up for the annual event.

The event, held by Cancer Reserch UK at Preston’s Moor Park on June 16 is a way to celebrate life but also remember those who have been lost to cancer.

Maria Montgomery, Cancer Research UK’s Preston event manager, said: “Women of all shapes, sizes, ages and levels of fitness take part in Race for Life. They come from different backgrounds and walks of life but they are united by their absolute determination to take on cancer and beat it.

“We know many women want to take part but are worried about completing the 5k course. But Race for Life is non-competitive.

“It’s not about being fit or fast. Taking part is about uniting against a disease that affects all of us.

“You can walk the 5k route, run it or jog it if you prefer, and many participants may be decked out in pink or fancy dress
