UP to 600 people will be in the pink on Sunday.

They will be taking part in this year's Cancer Research UK Pink Ribbon Run/Walk on Therfield Heath.

Both men and women will be taking part in this year's 5km event, which will begin at 11am.

A warm up session will be run by Pebbles, from the Black Pig Design Company, and staff from the Royston Leisure Centre at 10.40am.

One of the organisers, Maurice Hill, said: "It should be a fantastic day. Everyone has been telling me how much they are looking forward to it and I hope we can raise a lot of money."

Last year, 500 women took part in the event and raised more than £20,000 for the charity.

The Heath Sports Centre will be putting on a barbeque.

Royston's MP Oliver Heald will be drawing a raffle after the event.

Organisers will be accepting entries up to 10am on the day.

And all competitors who complete the event will receive a goody bag and medal.

Prizes will be awarded for the best pink outfit on the day and the most successful fund-raiser.
