Pretty Muddy is a women only, non competitive 5k obstacle course; with added
mud. It will take place for the first time in the City at Liverpool's Sefton
Park on Saturday, 4 July 2015.
It's the perfect challenge for those looking to shake off the January blues and
commit to get more active in 2015.
Cancer Research UK's Race for Life family of events also includes the 5k and 10k
courses, which thousands of women will take on at Sefton Park on Sunday, 5 July
and also at Aintree Racecourse on Sunday, 21 June 2015 to raise money for life saving
Every hour, more than 4 people are diagnosed with cancer in the North West,,,
And that's why Cancer Research UK is calling on Liverpool women to fight back
against this devastating disease by choosing their challenge - Pretty Muddy, 5k
or 10k - and signing up now.
Jennifer Ward, Cancer Research UK's Liverpool Event Manager, said:- "We're so
excited about launching Race for Life Pretty Muddy in Liverpool. The event is
taking place in the City for the 1st time and we're calling on local ladies to
sign up now. We've no doubt that they've got the fighting spirit to get down and
dirty in the bid to beat cancer sooner. Pretty Muddy promises all the fun and camaraderie of our much loved 5k and 10k
events; just with an extra serving of mud. Race for Life events are not competitive. They are not about being fit or fast.
Women can complete the Pretty Muddy course at their own pace, climbing, jumping,
walking and laughing their way around. It's about an army of women coming
together in the fight against cancer. If you're looking for an opportunity to get the New Year off to good start,
this is the time to commit to Race for Life. With fire in their bellies and
trainers at the ready, we know that Liverpool ladies are up for the challenge."
Cancer Research UK's Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring
women-only series of 5k, 10k and Pretty Muddy events which raises millions of
pounds every year to help beat 200 different types of cancer.
Money raised through Race for Life allows Cancer Research UK's doctors, nurses
and scientists to advance research which is helping to save the lives of men,
women and children across the North West.
Cancer survival rates have doubled since the 1970s and Cancer Research UK's work
has been at the heart of that progress. But more funds and more supporters are
needed to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Jennifer continued:- "We're calling on the brave ladies of Liverpool to pull on
their leggings and take on cancer at this year's event. Race for Life is to celebrate those who are with us, and also remember those
who are not. The atmosphere is electric, our participants are so inspiring and
we're calling on the women of Liverpool to help make 2015 our best year yet."
