The 5k or 10k events will take place at 10.30am on Sunday, May 17, at Thornes Park Stadium.

The women-only races, which take place across the country, raise funds for Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading cancer charity.

Last year, 1,975 women took part in Wakefield and raised a £104,500.

This year organisers are hoping 2,000 people will help raise £137,000.

The Race for Life is run in partnership with Tesco.

To sign up for the event, visit www.raceforlife.org or call 0300 1230770.

The deadline is tomorrow (Thursday) at midnight.

Registration costs £14.99 for adults and £10 for children, to cover the cost of staging the races.
