Lisa Millett, Cancer Research UK spokesperson for North Yorkshire, said:

“We’re sending a heartfelt message to everyone to seize the opportunity and come join us to Race for Life in Harrogate this October on The Stray. 

“As the coronavirus outbreak continues to unfold, we are listening to the advice and guidance of the UK Government carefully.

“While our priority is ensuring that people affected by cancer get the support and information they need during unprecedented times, we’re having to work quickly to understand the impact the pandemic will have on Cancer Research UK’s fundraising.

“We hope men, women and children will unite against cancer and make Race for Life Harrogate the best yet this October. Together we can beat cancer."
