A cancer charity will be using Valentine's Day to get women to share the love and sign up for its annual race.

Cancer Research UK’s Race For Life will take place at Trent Park in Enfield in June, but the charity is hoping to use the romance of February 14 get more people signed up.

Felicity Stevens, CRUK’s Enfield Events Manager, said: “Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to spend time with the people we love. And for that reason it’s also the perfect date to enter Race for Life.

“This is because taking part in Race for Life, and raising money for life-saving research, will help more men, women and children survive cancer so they can go on to spend more precious moments with their loved ones.

“This Valentine’s Day, we’re calling on an army of feisty females to help us kiss cancer goodbye. Together, they will be at the heart of a collective force that will stop cancer in its tracks.”

The 5km or 10km event will take place on Sunday, June 15.

Last year, 3,722 women took part in Race for Life in Enfield and raised a fantastic £277,384.
