Charity race a step closer

ENTRIES for Race for All, a charity race set up following the axing of Race for Life on the Isle of Wight, open later this month.

The race was the idea of Jamie Bray, of B7 Events and Promotions, who created it after Cancer Research cancelled the Island’s Race for Life event, claiming it was not cost effective.

Unlike Race for Life, Race for All invites entries from men and women to take part in a 5,000 metre race or a fun run. Money raised by the event will still go to Cancer Research UK.

Jamie said: "I’m so proud that everything is coming together and the Island is able to join in he fight to beat cancer."

The event, which has been sponsored by Reynolds and Read, will take place at Medina Leisure Centre on August 17.

Entry forms will be available from April 30 via or by contacting
