WOMEN taking part in Sunday’s News-sponsored Cancer Research UK Race for Life at Tweseldown Racecourse in Church Crookham will have an added incentive to go beyond the finishing line.

For they will be able to go straight into a tent and receive a free massage or chiropractic care courtesy of a team from Hartley Wintney’s String Lifestyles Centre.

Dr Lee Wickham said: “Many people may not realise that chiropractic care can support patients suffering or recovering from different forms of cancer and our chiropractors often hold talks for groups on this and other topics.”

This is the first time a Race for Life has been staged in the Fleet area, although the national charity fundraising event is now in its tenth year and getting bigger every time.

The events start with a mass aerobic warm-up and everyone taking part in the 5km (3.1 miles) race gets a medal and a goody bag.

Although called a race, there is no prize for first place as the motivation behind taking part is to raise money.

Cancer Research UK will spend £176million on research this year so fundraising events such as Race for Life make its life-saving work possible.

The Tweseldown Race for Life starts at 11am but there are no places available on the day.
