June 28th 2015 saw the 10th anniversary of the Run For Life in Louth, an event that has grown from humble beginnings to capture the imaginations and enthusiasm of hundreds every year.

The first run in 2006 was women-only, and only later did it expand to take in three categories.

BBC Lincolnshire were on stage to announce the start and welcome people back, whilst Hollie Wells took care of warming up competitors.

The run was in aid of Cancer Research, and I'll admit to having a lump in my throat as I read all of the messages posted on people's backs in memory of those people affected, and in celebration of those people who have survived cancer.

2014's event raised over 40,000 for Cancer Research UK. If the crowds in the market place were any indication, I fully expect 2015's event to beat that total.
