Race for Life set for Pennington Flash

HUNDREDS of women will join together to help beat cancer at Tesco and Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Leigh this weekend.

More than 1,600 women - including cancer survivors and people taking part in memory of or in celebration or their loved ones’ lives – will walk, jog or run 5k at Pennington Flash to raise money for life-saving research.

As well as the race, there will also be face painting, a cycling smoothie making bar, and inflatable penalty shoot-out.

The community can also enjoy a physio massage from NRG Health and fitness team or get weight loss advice from Wigan Leisure and Culture Trust and take part in an aerobic warm-up led by local Rosemary Conley team leader Linda Coombs-Brennan.
