With just over two weeks to go until the big day, organisers are rallying local women to join the fight against cancer as fewer women than expected have registered for the life-saving fundraiser.

Organisers are calling on mums, daughters, sisters and friends to show their support and take part in the 5k and 10k events at Sherborne Castle on Sunday 18 June.

Entry closes on Friday 16 June at midnight and women across the city can sign up right now at www.raceforlife.org.

Brenda Scott, Event Manager for Race for Life in Sherborne, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that 500 women have entered Sherborne Race for Life. But we still need more women to come forward, sign up and help beat cancer sooner. So we’re urging anyone who has been thinking about taking part to join the fight and sign up today.”

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring women-only series of 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Marathon and Hiking events which raises millions of pounds every year to find new ways to tackle cancer.
