MEN and boys are being invited to take part in Hereford's Race for Life this year after organisers dropped the traditional women-only rule.

The event, which raises money for Cancer Research UK, takes place at Halo Leisure centre on June 2.

People of all abilities are welcomed.

Kimberley Degville, Cancer Research UK’s Hereford Event Manager, said: “Our Race for Life events have been women-only since they started, over 25 years ago. But we now feel the time is right to open them up so that everyone - women, men and children – has the chance to participate together.
