In pictures – Lincoln Race for Life 2021

Hundreds of competitors have raised thousands of pounds for Cancer Research UK in this year’s Race for Life at the Lincolnshire Showground.

More than 850 people of all ages signed up for the series of 3k, 5k and 10k runs on Saturday, September 11 after last year’s event was cancelled due to the pandemic.

People also got caked in mud during the Pretty Muddy obstacle course as they crawled under commando netting and hurtled down the mud slide.

The charity’s much-loved event at Grange de Lings just north of Lincoln was held with social distancing measures and staggered start times to keep participants safe.

As in previous years, many competitors wore tutu skirts and colourful wigs – and there even one racer dressed as Wonder Woman.

The money raised will help scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, saving lives as the charity fights back from the impact of the pandemic.

The Race for Life has been run with Tesco for 20 years.
