There’s still time to sign up for the 5k Race for Life Huddersfield, which returns to the town on Sunday, July 10.
And while there’s the word ‘race’ in the title, this is an event that celebrates taking part rather than winning.
As Katie Mathers, Cancer Research UK’s Huddersfield event manager, says: “It’s more of a fun run really, it’s not competitive. It’s more about the cause.
“We do get elite runners who complete the course in 16 or 17 minutes but we also have people who take an hour because they’re walking.
“Some of these are people who are undergoing treatment and it’s a really emotional event for them.”
The 16th Race for Life in Huddersfield takes place at the Leeds Road Sports Complex, with starters orders at 10.30am.
Last year nearly 1,800 women and children took part, raising more than £100,000 for the cancer charity.

This year organisers are hoping for similar numbers.
In Yorkshire as a whole the Race for Life involves more than 60,000 women and nets around £3m.
While many runners sign up in advance for the nationwide annual event, which offers 25 races in Yorkshire alone, there’s usually a last-minute rush to grab a place. “We always get women registering at the last minute,” said Katie.
“But we can’t take more than 1,800 participants in Huddersfield because that’s the capacity of the sports ground.”
Entry into the race is £14.99 for women over 16 and £10 for girls under 16 and boys under 12.
