The 5 Kilometre (3.1 miles) Cancer Research UK - Race for Life nationwide event is a
women and girls only race to raise funds for this charity each year.
In Aberdeen it is held at Kings Links. Entrants can run or walk the course. 230 other venues across the UK host it which makes this the biggest fundraising event. Over 425,000 entrants take part each year.
The 5K Race for Life Aberdeen 2014 takes place on Sunday 22 June at 9:30am (10K run) and 11am (5K).
I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.
