Dundee runners invited to take part in ‘special’ Race for Life


19th August 2020

Fundraisers across Dundee are set to unite against cancer by taking part in a special Race for Life weekend next month.

Organisers Cancer Research UK cancelled all 400 mass participation events in 2020 amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

This included the Race for Life 5K, 10K and Pretty Muddy events at the city’s Camperdown Park, which had been due to take place on Sunday June 14.

The public are now being invited to participate in their own Race for Life 5K in their nearest green space on Saturday September 26.

People are encouraged to take part in the Very 2020 Race for Life either alone or in small, socially distanced groups – but all on the same day – to help people with cancer.

The charity is expecting a £160 million drop in income in the year ahead with a £44 million cut to research funding already this year.
