Over fourteen hundred take part in Guernsey’s Race for Life

July 10th, 2011 by Richard Lord

At 11 am on 10 July 2011, the Footes Lane Athletics Track was awash with pink as over 1470 women took part in Guernsey’s Race for Life in aid of Cancer Research UK.  After a warm-up by Kathy Scott women of all ages and abilities set-off on a 5 kilometre course that took them around Saumarez Park and back to Footes Lane.

These images were taken a few hundred metres from the finish line and are posted in chronological order.

Some participants were very competitive and ran around the course at a blistering pace while others used the occasion for socialising with fellow travellers.
