Pink leggings on display in charity fun run
Cancer Research's Race for Life took place at Kemble Airfield in the south-west of England this month, with pink being the colour of choice for over 1,400 women taking part.

The Gloucestershire Echo, which sponsored the event, reported how the five-kilometre course aimed to raise £92,000 from those who took part, with the pink clothing on show extending to leggings, knee-highsocks and stockings.

Natasha Russell, the event manager for Race for Life in the Cotswolds, said: "The atmosphere has been unbelievable.

"Almost all the ladies who come to do the race have had their lives affected by cancer in some way, either experiencing it themselves or through a loved one."

Ms Russell added that the spirit among the legwear-loving runners was "so upbeat" and the run made a huge difference.

The Race for Life has a number of celebrities taking part too, including comedienne and presenter Amy Lame and runner Paula Radcliffe.
