Thousands of people are expected to take part in this weekend’s Race For Life and Pretty Muddy events in Abington Park.
Each year Race For Life descends on Abington Park, with thousands of competitors taking part to raise vital money for charity.
For the first time, Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone – women, men and children – to join the Race for Life.
The charity has said it expects more than £200,000 to be raised through charity donations and applications payments just in Northampton - as families from all over the county take part.
There are four Race for Life events to choose from at Abington Park with more than 4,000 people expected to cross the finish line over the weekend.
