PEOPLE are being invited to put their best foot forward and start the New Year by signing up to Cancer Research UK's Race for Life in Norwich and King's Lynn.

The charity's much-loved events are returning for 2022 and anyone who joins this January can claim a special 50 per cent off the entry fee, as part of a half-price sale, by using the code RFL22J50.

Every year around 37,300 people are diagnosed with cancer in the East of England* and one in two people in the UK born after 1960 will get cancer in their lifetime.**  Money raised at Race for Life enables scientists to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer - helping to save more lives.

Race for Life events are open to women, men and children of all ages and abilities.

This year, there will be 3k, 5k and 10k distances at the Norfolk Showground, Dereham Road, Norwich on Sunday, 15 May.

Race for Life also includes Pretty Muddy, a mud-splattered obstacle course, in some locations, including the Norfolk Showground. This will be taking place the day before, on Saturday, 14 May, as will a Pretty Muddy Kids option.

There will be 3k and 5k distances at Houghton Hall on Tuesday, 12 July.

Michael Jarvis, Cancer Research UK's spokesperson in the East of England, said: "Everyone can play their part to help beat cancer.

"January is the perfect time for people to commit to getting a little more active. By signing up to Race for Life there's the chance to raise money for life-saving research. Sadly, cancer affects all of us in some way. Whether people are living with cancer, taking part in honour of or in memory of a loved one with cancer, or signing up to protect their own children's future, everyone has a reason to Race for Life.

"Our Race for Life events are open to all. For some people the Race for Life is literally a walk in the park. Slow and steady still wins. For others it's a jog. Others may opt to push themselves harder and take part in the 10K distance. But what is for certain is we're looking forward to welcoming people of all ages and abilities. Race for Life in Norwich and King's Lynn will be fun, emotional, colourful, uplifting and unforgettable this year."

Race for Life across the UK this year will follow current government guidance to protect against COVID-19. Hand sanitiser will be provided at all events.

Michael added: "We hope none of our Race for Life events are cancelled in 2022 and will do everything we can to keep people safe. If we do have to cancel any of our events we will let participants know as soon as possible and they will be entitled to a full refund."

Cancer Research UK's Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, raises funds for world-class research to help beat 200 types of cancer, including: bowel cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, testicular cancer, brain cancer, children's cancers and leukaemia.

Oonagh Turnbull, Head of Health Campaigns at Tesco, said: "This will be our 21st year in partnership with Cancer Research UK and Race for Life, and we hope this year can be the biggest yet."
