Five thousand will run the Race For Life on Sunday


FIVE thousand women will take part in this weekend's Cancer Research UK Race For Life in Birkenhead Park.

They will run, walk or jog the five kilometre course on Sunday morning to help raise much-needed funds for research into the disease.

The deadline for entries was today when it was confirmed that the maximum number of participants has been reached, beating last year's figure of 4200.

The Globe has been the event's official newspaper for the last four years.

Praising our role in helping to promote the event and beat last year's figure, race organiser Helen Wright said: "A massive 800 more women than last year is fantastic.

"I want to say a huge thank you to the Globe for all your support since the launch with all the stories you have done."

Blowing the starter's whistle at 11am on Sunday will be Andy King from Wallasey Village. Andy is supporting this year's event in tribute to his brave wife, Lisa, who lost her short battle with lung cancer in April 2007, aged 34.

Also taking part in the race for a fourth time is a group of forty students and staff from Park High School in Birkenhead, who hope to raise 1000.

Don't forget to bring your donation station bag to the event. By filling up your Donation Station bag with quality items you no longer need, which then get sold in local Cancer Research UK shops, you could add as much as 30 to your sponsorship amount.

Across all Race for Life events in the UK last year, your unwanted clothes, DVDs, CDs, books etc raised a further 1.5 million to fund Cancer Research UK's life-saving research.

When I used to run for Wirral I wasnt just a sprinter (though the 200m was my primary sport), I did cross-country racing till I was about 14 as well. Would love to do events like this, but hate the fact they charge you "admin fee's" and the like before you have even raised a penny for the actual charity, not to mention the events become listed as "full" very quickly.

Someone is making a nice earner out of the "admin fee" thats for sure. It should be free, with all funds going to charity.

Also don't get why it has to be women only... if it were men-only that would be discrimination lol.

Yes 12.99 to enter before I'd even got sponsors was a bit off-putting frown

Thousands take part in record-breaking Wirral Race For Life



MORE than 5000 women took part in a record-breaking Wirral Race For Life on Sunday.

A torrential downpour failed to dampen the spirits of the 5,167 who walked, ran or jogged the 5km course. They have helped raise 205,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Jane Bullock, race organiser the charity, told the Globe, which has been the event's official newspaper for the last four years: "It was an absolultely brilliant and a record-breaker, because we beat the number of people who registered for the Wirral race last year.

"Thanks very much, once again, for the Globe's help in making it the success it was."

Among those taking part were Angela Samata and her mother Jenny Lloyd along with sister Helen Bishtin and her one-year-old daughter Matilda.

The race was a particularly special for Jenny, aged 56, from Bebington who won a battle against breast cancer last year.

Angela, 38 and from Oxton, told the Globe: "It was an amazing day and we were celebrating the fact that our mum had fought and won her fight against cancer and was able to join us on the day.

"So many women were taking part in memory of someone who had lost their life, but the fact that mum was also taking part was also very special.

"I don't know exactly how much we have all raised, but Matilda walked across the line and has raised 150."

Blowing the starter's whistle was Andy King, whose wife Lisa died from lung cancer in April 2007, aged 34.

Accompanied by his two children, Theo, aged five and three-year-old Libby, Andy got the race underway before cheering a huge gang of family and friends who are all taking part.

The weather was fine at the start, but within an hour the heavens opened and the rain fell.

If you were unable to make it to Birkenhead Park on Sunday, places are still available in Race for Life at Knowsley on Tuesday July 14 and at Aintree on Sunday July 19.

To register, log onto www.raceforlife.org or call 0871 641 2282.
