The Race for Life on Sunday was a huge success, with women from all over Cornwall donning their pink sports gear and fancy dress to run the 5k in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Some of the youngest participants were still in their pushchairs, whilst some of the oldest used walking frames to help them across the finish line.

Everyone involved played their part in raising money for the charity, and everyone had their own reasons for running the race.

Some of the ladies involved spoke about what inspired them to take part in the 5k, which started at Gyllyngvase and wound up to Pendennis Point and back down again.

Anne Quinton, who is from Somerset but owns a boat in Falmouth, said:"I'm a cancer sufferer myself. This time last year I didn't know I'd survive this long, so cancer research means a hell of a lot to me."
