RACE for Life organisers are urging women taking part in Sunday’s event to travel to Thornes Park responsibly.

More than 3,100 women have signed up to walk, run or jog 5k for Cancer Research UK.

There will be no parking at the park itself during the event, but a park and ride scheme will be in operation from Borough Road behind the bus station to Thornes Park from 8.30am. Parking will be available at the Rishworth Street car park.

People are also being encouraged to take public transport where possible.

Warm up for the event starts at 10am and the Race itself starts at 10.30am.

Women can boost their contribution by bagging up no longer needed clothes, books and accessories and take them to the donation station at Race for Life, which will be sold at Cancer Research UK charity shops.
