Race for Life at Stamford's Burghley House looks set to happen on June 5, 2021

Anyone looking for motivation to get moving in lockdown can now make a date to join Race for Life in Stamford.

Cancer Research UK’s event will have social distancing measures to help keep participants safe, and anyone who signs up this month can claim 30 per cent off the entry fee.

Covid-19 has caused a loss of research funding and Cancer Research UK predicts a £300m drop in income over the next three years.

Emily Rowling, event manager Race for Life in Stamford, said: “All 400 Race for Life events in the UK were cancelled last year to protect the country’s health during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Our events are open to all and, as always, the health and safety of participants, staff and volunteers is our top priority.

“It may be that the Race for Life in Stamford looks a little different this year but we are working to deliver a socially distanced but great experience.”

Participants will set off on the course either alone or in small socially distanced groups.

Hand sanitiser will also be provided, with participants encouraged to use it before and after the event.

Those taking part are asked not to hug others after crossing the finish line.

Race for Life takes place at Burghley House, Stamford, on Saturday June 5 and is open to men, women and children of all ages and abilities.

People can use the code JAN2021 at www.raceforlife.org to gain a discounted entry if they enter the event during January.
