MID CHESHIRE men and women are urged to step up for a 10k charity challenge.
Cancer Research UK is recruiting for its Run 10k event at Delamere Forest.
The charity wants 1,000 people to enter the event to help raise more than £60,000 for research into cancer.
Run 10k is a series of 43 fundraising events which will take place throughout the UK this autumn.
Cancer Research UK regional event manager Paula Jones said: “Run 10k is a great opportunity to have fun, get fit and raise money to help beat cancer. “We are encouraging men and women of all running abilities to sign up to Run 10k at Delamere Forest.
“Although the distance might sound like a challenge, lots of people can achieve it with a little bit of training.”
In Cheshire, Cancer Research UK is recruiting people with bowel cancer, and unaffected individuals, to take part in a genetic study.
Researchers hope to identify and find out more about genes that increase the risk of this disease.
About 40,000 people will be invited to take part in the trial.
Cancer Research UK’s Run 10k takes place on September 6. To enter, go to www.run10k.org.
