Pink ladies Race for Life in Stevenage

Thousands of women were in the pink on Saturday as they took on a Race for Life to help beat cancer.

More than 3,000 ladies of all ages gathered in Fairlands Valley Park to run, jog and walk a 5k or 10k course around the lakes to raise thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK.

The women-only event was rescheduled after waterlogged conditions forced the organisers to call the race off in July. The fundraisers were rewarded with bright sunshine this time round.
