Breast Cancer Care Women Only Run, 18th October 2014

One year later, and Human Race are back with their October Women’s Only run. This time, it’s Breast Cancer Care though.

The Breast Cancer Care Women Only Run will take place in the iconic and beautiful Richmond Park on Saturday 18 October 2014. This event is a firm favorite in the diary with runners of all abilities, with 5, 10 and 15km distances available. This is a rare opportunity to run on closed roads in a friendly and supportive all-female environment, at a bargain price. With entry from just £15 this is the good chance to feel good and do good!

Following on from being the official charity of the event in previous years, Breast Cancer Care is now also title sponsor of the Women Only Run. Runners will have the opportunity to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and help the life changing work carried out by their team. They work with many of the 50,000 UK residents a year diagnosed with breast cancer and their families.

Spanning 2,500 acres, Richmond Park is the largest Royal Park in London. Winding through gorgeous woodland, past a wide variety of wildlife and delightful gardens to be greeted by a stunning panoramic view of central London, this is arguably the most picturesque 5, 10 or 15km course in London. The Breast Cancer Care Women Only Run is the only traffic-free road running event in this unique and unforgettable location.

Unlike your average weekend run you won’t have to dodge cars and bikes, just concentrate on crossing that finish line and picking up your exclusive finishers’ medal. Those who are interested in participating in this great event only have until 9.00 pm on Monday 13 October to enter.

Women Only Series ambassador and Spice Girl Melanie C said “It is important women feel comfortable to try something new, challenge themselves and achieve goals. I think for women it is a wonderful thing to support each other and enjoy it. Exercise builds self-confidence and a healthier lifestyle.”

Buggies will also be welcome at the Breast Cancer Care Women Only Run. This has been a popular option in previous years, and buggy runners will be released in separate waves allowing you to select from any of the distances (5,10,15 km). Those who wish to jog with their little bundles of joy should select the ‘run with your buggy’ option on the Breast Cancer Care Women Only Run booking page.

For more information about this fantastic event, and to book before the deadline of Monday 13 October, visit the Human Race Events website: www.humanrace.co.uk/womenonly

This year, the event falls on my 30th birthday so I won’t be there! But I will be remembering what fun I had the year before and will be looking forward to taking part in 2015! 

Let me know if you sign up and how the event goes for you!
