Cancer Research UK Race for Life participants can get free bus travel to and from their race event in South Yorkshire thanks to a special offer from Travel South Yorkshire and First.
The offer is valid for Rotherham, Doncaster, Sheffield and Clumber Park race participants that are wearing their entry number and show it to their driver when they get on any First bus.
Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Since it began, over six million participants have raised over £457 million, walking, jogging or running for Cancer Research UK.
Travel South Yorkshire has teamed up with Hallam FM to get as many women to take part in this year’s events as possible, and to encourage them to plan their journey there by public transport at travelsouthyorkshire.com
Free parking will also be made available for race participants at Rotherham Interchange on 17 June and at Sheffield Park & Ride sites on 15 July.
SYPTE Director General, David Brown, said: “Travel South Yorkshire is proud to be supporting Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life events in South Yorkshire. We’re pleased to be working with Hallam FM to raise awareness of the events, and with First to provide a great offer to help people get there. Good luck to all South Yorkshire Race for Life participants.”
Janine Jones, co-host on Hallam FM’s Big John @ Breakfast, said: "I ran the Race for Life last year with one of my best friends and we had a ball. The atmosphere was brilliant, everyone was in high spirits and you can go at your own pace. For just an hour out of my day I managed to raise loads of money for a really good cause.
“Most of us know somebody who has been affected by cancer so let’s beat it together. It’s a brilliant thing to do and now Travel South Yorkshire is offering free travel to help you get there and back, it couldn’t be easier!"
Simon Pearson, First's Revenue and Customer Services Development Director, said: "We are delighted to work in partnership with Travel South Yorkshire to ensure the Race for Life runners get to the start on time."
