July 10th, 2011 by Richard Lord

Over 1470 women took part in Guernsey’s Race for Life which began at the Footes Lane athletics track at 11 am on Sunday 10 July.  The weather was slightly muggy, but the front runners made short work of the 5 kilometre course from Footes Lane to Saumarez Park and back again.  These images were taken shortly after Guernsey’s Race for Life began.
