LOCAL women are being urged to take part in this year's Locke Park Race for Life.

The 5k race takes place on Wednesday July 4.

Harry Hardiker, Cancer Research UK’s Barnsley Events Manager, said: “By taking part, and raising money for life-saving research, participants will be playing a crucial role in helping more men, women and children survive cancer - giving them the chance to have more time with their loved ones.”
