In photos: Burnham women run for charity at Race For Life 2009

Dozens of women from Burnham-On-Sea were among the 3,000 participants who pulled on their running shoes for a good cause on Sunday (May 17th).

Thousands of pounds was raised for Cancer Research UK at the annual Race For Life, which was held on Weston Beach. Despite rain and cold winds, the event was hailed a success by organisers.

A number of Burnham women were among those taking part, as pictured on this page. The participants walked, jogged or ran the five kilometre route. The race was held in Weston for the sixth year running and has raised more than £600,000 since it started in 2004.
