Many add poignant messages to their race numbers on the day.

Lisa Adams, Cancer Research UK’s spokeswoman in Scotland, said: “January is the perfect time for people to commit to getting a little more active.

“By signing up to Race for Life, there’s the chance to raise money for life-saving research. Sadly, cancer affects all of us in some way.

“Whether people are living with cancer, taking part in honour of or in memory of a loved one with cancer or signing up to protect their own children’s future, everyone has a reason to Race for Life. “The day is open to all ages and features 5k and 10k events.

Added Lisa: “For some people, the Race for Life is literally a walk in the park - slow and steady still wins!

“For others, it’s a jog and others may opt to push themselves harder and take part in the 10K distance.

“But what is for certain is we’re looking forward to welcoming people of all ages and abilities. Race for Life Falkirk will be fun, emotional, colourful, uplifting and an unforgettable event .”
