A reminder has been sent out to encourage runners to take part in this year’s Welwyn Hatfield Race for Life.


The 5km event, at Stanborough Park, in Welwyn Garden City, will be held on Sunday, June 8, with cash being raised for Cancer Research UK.

Rachel Parratt, Cancer Research UK’s East Anglia events manager, said: “Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to spend time with the people we love.

“And for that reason it’s also the perfect date to enter Race for Life.

“This is because taking part in Race for Life, and raising money for life-saving research, will help more men, women and children survive cancer so they can go on to spend more precious moments with their loved ones.”

Last year more than 2,200 women took part in the annual event in Welwyn Garden City, raising £157,785.
