Send your sponsor money

SCARBOROUGH’S Race for Life runners are being urged not to forget to submit their sponsorship cash.

Thousands of women and girls braved the heavy downpours on Sunday to take part in this year’s Scarborough Race for Life, in a bid to raise money for Cancer Research.

The participants are now being reminded to send in their sponsorship money.

Event organiser Claire Wase said: “On average one in three people don’t send in their sponsorship money for Race for Life Events.

“After all the effort training, and fundraising, and especially braving the terrible rain this year, it would be a real shame if people didn’t get their money sent in.

“We are hoping for a great total from the Scarborough runners, who kicked off the first Race for Life in Yorkshire this year in style.”

This year saw the 5k race move venue from Oliver’s Mount for the first time since it started in Scarborough in 2004.

Participants assembled in their hundreds in puddles outside the Sea Life Centre before making their way through the Open Air Theatre, past the Sands Complex, and along Royal Albert Drive.

They ran as far as Hairy Bob’s Cave, and back along the drive before the final stretch in front of the chalets and the finish back at the Sea Life Centre.
