The Race For Life event was held at Abington Park.

Two days of racing were held, with a Pretty Muddy 5km obstacle course with mud pits and slides on Saturday (June 3) and a 5km and a 10km race through the park on Sunday.

The event was open to all abilities. Competitors were sponsored by their friends and family and also paid an entrance fee, with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.

More photos from Race for Life Northampton will be published in this week's Chronicle & Echo, out this Thursday (June 8).
