Race for Life in Nowton Park, Bury.


Women in west Suffolk are being urged to get the New Year off to a great start by signing up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life 2015.

Participants can choose to take part in either 5k or 10k events at Nowton Park on Sunday, June 28. As well as raising funds for life-saving research, the non-competitive event offers a goal for people looking to get fit. Last year, 2,700 women entered and this time around organisers are looking for 2,500 to help raise £144,000. To enter, go to or call 0300 123 0770.
