THOUSANDS of women joined the fight against cancer by taking part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life at the Bowl on Saturday.

In all, 2,415 ladies took part in the 5km event and 802 in the afternoon 10km.

Participants ran, jogged and walked in an array of fairy wings, feather boas and fancy dress in all shades of pink.

Organisers are urging everyone who took part to return their sponsorship money.

Becky Ryczowski, Race for Life event manager, said: “We are asking our supporters to take one last step – by returning the money they’ve raised so it can go into vital research to help more men, women and children survive cancer.”
