The event, which raises money for Cancer Research UK, will be dedicated to Louise Malkin, a DT technician who was a member of the support team at Thomas Clarksion Academy in Wisbech and its predecessor Queens School for more than 20 years.

She lost her battle with cancer in October last year and is greatly missed by her colleagues at TCA.

Laura Buckenham is a humanities teacher at TCA and is also Louise's niece.

She said: "After the success of dedicating last year's race to our dear friend and colleague Nicki Cobbin, it's a lovely idea to dedicate this year's race to Auntie Louise.
