National charity Cancer Research UK has been holding the women-only events since 1994.

So far, about six milliojn women have taken part, raising nearly £500 million for the charity.

A Cancer Research UK spokesman said: “Race for Life is a series of women-only events raising money for research, so we will beat all 200 types of cancer sooner.

“Show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink by taking part in one of our 5km events around the country.

“Five kilometres is an achievable distance for all abilities, so unite in the fight against cancer with us this year by signing up now.”

Women are encouraged to dress in pink and wear a card in memory or support of people they know with cancer, before walking, jogging or running a 5km course.

This year, races will take place in Sheffield – at Meadowhall Shopping Centre – on Sunday, May 17, in Doncaster, on Sunday, June 28, and Rotherham, on Sunday, July 5.

Races will also take place in Chesterfield, on Sunday, June 14, and Clumber Park, near Worksop, on Sunday, June 21.

Clumber Park will also hold a 10km Race for Life on the same day.
