Organisers of this year’s Race For Life in Sheffield are putting out a last call for entrants – and women have until the end of Thursday to sign up.

The annual event returns to Sheffield this Sunday, but instead of following its traditional route around the city centre, this year the route will wind its way around Meadowhall shopping centre for the first time.

In 2012 4,755 women took part in the 5k race, raising more than £238,000 for Cancer Research UK – and at the last count, 3,815 women had signed up this year, with organisers hoping to collect £320,000.

Ladies have until midnight on Thursday to register.

Jenny Murgatroyd, organiser of the race in Sheffield said: “Race for Life is non-competitive, so there’s no need to worry about being fit or fast.

“It doesn’t matter if you walk, jog or even dance your way around the course.

“There are over 200 cancers and we won’t give up until we find cures for them all.”

To enter visit or call 0845 6006050. This year group entry has been made easier and all runners will receive a donation pack.
