More than 4,000 women have taken part in Cambridge's 16th Race for Life.

Setting off from Parker's Piece and ending up at Jesus Green, the race which can be either 5K or 10K will this year raise more than £300,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Colchester's Race for Life also took place today at Lower Castle Park.
