The events will return to Portsmouth this weekend.

Funds raised through the events go towards cancer care for patients, equipment to help tackle cancer, and research into the disease.

Last year’s Race for Life was postponed to 2022 due to poor weather conditions, so many are expected to take part in the charity events this year to make up for lost time.

When is the Pretty Muddy race?

The Pretty Muddy 5k will take place in Portsmouth on Saturday (July 2).

It includes a muddy obstacle course, where participants will need to scramble over the A-frame and crawl through a pit of mud to reach the finish line.

Participants have been advised to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before their start time so that they are prepared and ready to go on time.
