MORE than 600 people are set to enter this year's Pink Ribbon Run/Walk on Sunday.

The event on Therfield Heath will be raising money for Cancer Research UK.

And this year organisers are hoping that £40,000 will be raised.

This will mean that over the past three years £100,000 has been donated to the charity.

Over the past weeks one of the organisers, Maurice Hill, chairman of Royston Runners, has been giving groups - including Scouts from Steeple Morden - training sessions to prepare them for the three-mile event.

Organisers are hoping that 1,000 people will be talking part on Sunday - and entries for the event will be allowed up to 10am.
