Runners are being encouraged to tackle the Race for Life at Home event this April.
With Race for Life events postponed until the Autumn because of the pandemic, organisers at Cancer Research UK have lined up an event on Saturday, April 24, in partnership with Tesco.
In the meantime, why not re-live some memories of runners from the borough who did their bit for charity each year.
Take a look at our selection of Race For Life memories from the past.
