Race 4 Life Photo Maxine Haines

It was a sea of pink at Palm Bay this weekend as women and girls took on a variety of courses in aid of Cancer Research UK.

It was a tough challenge as temperatures nudged towards the mid 80 degrees  but entrants rallied to complete their routes and raise essential cash for the cause.

Entrants ran 5k, half marathon and/or took part in the Pretty Muddy challenge.

Ahead of the race volunteers from Ageless Thanet, GOGA, Your Leisure and Our Kitchen on the Isle of Thanet were busy filling 800 goodie bags for all those taking part.

Here are the pictures posted by some of the amazing people who took part.
