Women and girls went all out with pink clothing when they joined in the fight against cancer in Wakefield at the weekend.

The Cancer Research Race for Life events at Thornes Park began on Saturday morning with Pretty Muddy, a 5km non-competitive route with obstacles.

Women tackled a 5k route hurdles, cargo nets, tunnels and a bouncy slide, complete with lots of sludge.

More fundraisers turned the park pink again on Sunday morning, for the Race for Life 5km and 10km runs.

Race for Life events are a series of women-only 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, marathon and hiking challenges which raise millions of pounds every year to help fund ground-breaking research into the disease.
