Women across Norfolk can now pledge to take part in Cancer Research UK's Race For Life in May.

The wave of pink will be returning to the Norfolk Showground for a series of events, including the 5k and 10k races – as well as the popular Pretty Muddy 5k.

Rachel Parratt, Cancer Research UK's Norwich event manager, said: 'Women can complete the Pretty Muddy course at their own pace, climbing, jumping, walking and laughing their way around. It's about women of all ages, shapes and sizes tackling obstacles together.'

Around 9,000 women took part in a Race for Life event in Norwich in 2015 and raised £489,400 for the charity.

She added: 'We're calling on the brave ladies of Norwich to harness their fighting spirit once more and really show cancer whose boss... it is an amazing way to celebrate everyone we love who has survived cancer. It's also an emotional and moving way to pay tribute to those dear to us whose lives have been cut short by the disease.'

The 5K and Pretty Muddy 5K are on Saturday, May 14, and the next day 10K and 5K races will take place.
