Fifers urged to sign up as Race For Life looks to return after lockdown

Fifers are being urged to look beyond lockdown by making a date to join Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in the Kingdom.

Thursday, 24th June 2021, 7:37 am

The charity’s much-loved events are aiming to return later this summer- but with socially distanced measures to keep participants safe.

Money raised will help scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, saving lives as the charity fights back from the impact of the pandemic.

Anyone who signs up between June 21 and July 4 can claim a special 30 per cent off the entry fee by using the code RFLJUNE30.

The day will also feature 3K, 5K or 10K events, open to all ages and abilities.

Lisa Adams, Cancer Research UK spokeswoman in Scotland, said: “Race for Life offers the perfect opportunity for people across Scotland’s capital to run, walk or jog and raise money for life-saving research.

“All 400 mass participation Race for Life events across the UK were cancelled last year.

“So this year, more than ever, we need people to enter - for the people we love, for the people we’ve lost and for the one in two of us who will get cancer.”

Participants will set off on the course either alone or in small, socially distanced groups.

Lisa added: “We’ll also ask participants to respect social distancing before, during and after the event.

“But we promise our events will remain colourful, emotional and uplifting.
