Hundreds of women are set to light up the Norfolk Showground to raise vital funds for cancer research.
Tomorrow will see the first ever Race for Life Twilight take place in Norfolk.
More than 500 women have signed up to take part in the inaugural event, which will see them don fairy lights, glow sticks and shiny accessories as they walk, jog or run the 5k route.
Norwich is one of just four cities across the UK hosting one of the Cancer Research UK fundraisers.
Race organiser Gemma Turpin, pictured right with Michelle Barnett, said: “I’m so excited about the first Twilight event. Hopefully the ladies will come in their hundreds and light up the Norfolk Showground.”
It starts at 8pm. Women will be able to enter on the night. Entry costs £14.99.
