The Louth Run For Life 2011 took place in blazing sunshine, which didn't deter around 1000 people from taking part. People braved the heat wearing fairy costumes, bunny ears, full firefighting kit, and there was even one guy dressed as a furry crocodile. It was all in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The route for the children's race was slightly different this year, going in one 1km circuit around Kidgate rather than two circuits of the same area. The senior races followed the same route as last year, a circuit around Hubbard's Hills. The Men's Senior event started at 11.45am, and it was a little less well attended than the women's race.

The event is sponsored by the Co-operative, although a lot of other companies and groups were involved in making the day a success, such as Louth Round Table who donated jackets for the race marshalls. Everyone who took part came home with a medal and a goody bag with refreshments.

Colorgrafix are the event's official photographers, and they try to get pictures of as many runners as possible as they pass the finish line. They arrange them by race number, and from Tuesday you can get them from their store in Eastgate so long as you have your race number.
