Buchan ladies are being encouraged to get into training for Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life Twilight, taking place in Aberdeen for the first time this October.

Race for Life Twilight is an evening, 5k women-only non competitive event which raises money for Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.

The event takes place on Saturday, October 19 at the Beach Esplanade and is an ideal way for women to motivate themselves to become more active.

Susan Johnstone, Cancer Research UK’s Scotland Event Manager, said: “We need mums, grans, daughters, sisters, friends and workmates to join our formidable army and step out in a shimmering display of light to dazzle cancer into submission.”

Race for Life Twilight promises all the passion and camaraderie of Race for Life but with the added excitement of a fundraising experience under the stars. Participants are encouraged to help create the enchanting twilight experience by bringing fairy lights, glow sticks and sparkly accessories.

Susan added: “Whether you choose to walk, jog or run the 5k route, every step you take and every pound you help raise will help create more tomorrows for more loved ones everywhere.”
