Race for Life – Saturday and Sunday 9th and 10th June 2012

12 Mar

Cancer Research UK 2012 will be staging Race for Life events in Bristol on The Downs as follows:

·         10K, Saturday 9th June, 10am start
·         5K, Saturday 9th June, 3pm start
·         5K, Sunday 10th June, 11am start

Last year, the Bristol events raised over £513,000, which was a brilliant achievement and has really helped contribute towards new and ongoing research into the cause, prevention and treatment of cancers.  Survival rates in the UK have increased for nearly all cancers, so real progress is being made but there is still a long way to go. Cancer UK hope that this year they can get more women to join the fight against cancer. They would love to have a team from Bristol & West participating in the Race for Life and the club can register a team at www.raceforlife.org and will be provided with a team ID for members to use to join.  If any club members are interested in running please contact Keith Brackstone at keithatrvp@blueyonder.co.uk.

Cancer UK are reliant on male and female volunteers to ensure the events can take places.  So if any club member is able to help marshal the course or hand out medals and bottled water they can find out more details of the roles that are available at www.raceforlife.org/volunteer
Cancer UK are keen to engage new participants via social media and the Race for Life Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/raceforlife?sk=events.
