They will set off a formidable army of more than 2,600 women on their way round the 5k route to raise money for Cancer Research UK's pioneering work.

Among the sea of women will be many who have survived cancer themselves or are participating in memory or celebration of loved ones whose lives has been touched by the disease.

Cancer Research UK's Race for Life is a women-only series of events which raises millions of pounds every year to help defeat cancer by funding life-saving research.
