Chesterfield Race for Life
Chesterfield Borough Council and Cancer Research UK have teamed up for the town’s ninth Race for Life.
Women of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities can walk, jog or run 5k to raise money to help beat cancer. All women are welcome and boys under 11 are welcome too.
Residents are also being encouraged to volunteer at the event. There are a variety or voluntary roles available to help make the event run smoothly on the day.
- Event Day Volunteer – Get stuck in with anything – from pitching flags and hanging banners to handing out water and medals.
- Course Marshal Volunteer – Cheer on the runners, walkers and joggers as they take on the course and lift some spirits along the way.
- Enquiries Volunteer – Help ease the nerves by supporting runners and spectators with their queries

This year’s event will set off from Queen’s Park at 10.30am on Sunday 3 June and follow a different route to previous years, which it is hoped will also reduce disruption to motorists.
Participants will complete a double lap of Queen’s Park and Boythorpe Avenue as part of a 5km route instead of going through the town centre.
As a result there will only be road closures on Boythorpe Avenue and Park Road – between Boythorpe Avenue and the exit from the Ravenside Retail Park in Markham Road – from early morning until early afternoon.
