STAFFORD Race for Life organisers are urging more women to sign up for next week's County Showground event. The deadline for entries, via the www.raceforlife.org website is midnight on Friday July 4.
So far 1,560 ladies have signed up to take part in Race for Life Stafford on July 8. The event takes place on a five-kilometre track around the Stafford County Showground and starts at 7:30pm.
But more than 400 spaces are still available for runners, walkers and joggers to take part and support the work of Cancer Research UK In Staffordshire and also across the country.
A spokeswoman said: !"We are in the thick of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life series and are still doing everything we can do to recruit more ladies to take part and raise sponsorship so that we can bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
"Any support people in the Stafford area can give is very much appreciated. And we will also give a warm welcome to spectators and supporters - we'd like a big turn-out of people to cheer on the runners."
