Take on the 5k challenge
Women of all shapes and sizes, ages and abilities can walk, jog or charge their way around a Race for Life 5k event in partnership with Tesco. If you run or jog the 5k (3 miles) you can usually complete the course in about 30 to 45 minutes. If you’re walking, it takes about an hour. But there’s no rush – this isn’t about racing to the finish line, it’s about uniting to fight cancer.
With 150 5k Race for Life events happening across the UK this summer (including ten in London) you’re bound to find one local to you.
