    Why are guys not allowed to enter this? Surely sexist?

    Quote fromt he website just for you! :thumbsup:

    01. Why is Race for Life for women only?
    Race for Life is the only women-only event of its type organised by Cancer Research UK. We restrict entry to women due to the wishes of our participants. It is one of our most successful events because it is a unique opportunity for women to come together in a non-competitive and celebratory atmosphere.

    But Race for Life has many male supporters, who help out on the day and support the participants. Men can get involved by volunteering with us. To find out more how you can volunteer at an event near you, please call our hotline on 0871 641 2272.

    This year Blackheath Race for Life is followed by Run for Moore, a 5km event for men to help raise money for the Booby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK. Why not get the men in your life to take part and help tackle bowel cancer?

    We also organise Run 10k, an autumn series of 10 kilometere running events which are open to men and women who want to raise money to support our vital research. For further info, please visit the Run 10k website.

    Thanks for all that additional info LJC, it does seem a bit sexist but does make sense! I always say to men that they can take part...... by sponsoring, you don't have to physically run or walk to take part really!! :thumbsup:
