Race for Life 2015 : Introduction & Discount Code

Regular readers may have gathered that I am not the biggest fan of exercise and struggle to motivate myself. When Cancer Research UK first contacted me asking if I would like to be part of the 2015 Race for Life Blogger Team I declined, using the fact that I hadn't long given birth as an excuse, I am the Queen of excuses. After thinking about it for a while I decided that this was not a valid excuse, in fact, if anything, it was a reason for me to take part, that and the fact that it is for an amazingly good cause. I last took part in my local 5K Race for Life in 2010 with Curves, I had a fantastic day and managed to raise an amazing £195 for Cancer Research, if I can raise half of that amount again I will be more than happy.

Race for Life Cwmbran 5K 2010 Pink Army

I initially decided to sign up to the Pretty Muddy 5K in Cardiff as it sounds like great fun and I imagine that it will be quite revitalising, I then learnt that you can take pushchairs along to the standard walking/running events so opted to do the more tame 5K in Cwmbran on 21 June 2015 with Aria. 

If you would like to join in with the fun and the fundraising this year you can get £2 off the entry fee with the code RFLslice here, this discount does only apply to the first twenty people clicking through so be quick! 

Aria and I will be donning pink and partaking in Race For Life, Cwmbran on 21 June 2015, I would be very grateful if you could sponsor me, big or small donations, every little really does count.

  1. I agree with fundraising for charity and think its a good idea, many other charities do the same thing. The thing I don't like about Race For Life is how they exclude men. I don't think anything like this should be able to exclude groups of people from taking part because of their gender. Cancer affects men too, including breast cancer. I really don't like how feminist terms like 'sisterhood' are used on their website as it makes it political. CRUK wouldn't get away with having a race that would only let white people take part, neither would they get away with having one that excluded LGBT people. Other charities like Macmillan have charity runs that let everyone take part. I think they are a great idea, I just don't think it is right to have women or men only ones. All the best for when you run x

    1. I can see your point but then from another point of view I like Race For Life because it excludes the men, for the same reason that I like to attend gyms that exclude men.
      They are including men a little as you get to nominate your hero male supporter who is then supposed to fund raise for you.
