On the 5th June, Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life returns to Horsham Park at 11.00AM with hosts Heart FM.

Registered entrants will be running a 5k lap through the scenic park starting and ending their race by the central pond. A large turnout is expected from family, friends and supporters with attendance in previous years being around 2,500.

Taking part is a great way to raise money and also sets an aim for any personal fitness goals. Around the track there will be several stalls for membership and further information, as well as food and entertainment options available for spectators.

Supportive atmosphere

Last year the Horsham organiser Jenny Ainsworth highlighted that the event is non-competitive: “Most women are able to walk 5k in an hour while chatting and having fun. Or they can choose to jog, run or even dance around the course if they prefer”.

Events will be taking place throughout the UK with the total raised hitting millions of pounds to fund lifesaving research.


The race is split into various entries, however all will be racing at the same time. For adult women (16+) to enter there’s a fee of £14.99 and for child entry it’s reduced to £10.00. Children under the age of six don’t need to register and include both girls and boys.

To enter, visit the official site here and start raising money for a great cause. It’s important to know there’s no specific parking for the event in town, so normal charges will apply.

You can follow the event on the day using #RaceforLife on Twitter as you support the famous Pink Army of women fighting to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
