Mini Chester Created For Race For Life

The creation sees hundreds of mini runners making their way around Chester and passing the historic Eastgate Clock. The actual event takes place this Sunday.

Hundreds of women will run, walk, and dance the 5km to the finish line at Chester Racecourse to raise awareness of the fight against cancer. In honour of all of all those ladies taking part and collecting money for the Cancer Research charity, the Trafford Centre attraction has recreated the roman city's race in their Chester Miniland.

The women-only series of events takes place every year raising millions of pounds to help defeat cancer by funding life-saving research. Heart supports runs across the North West and Wales including Delamere Forrest, Birkenhead and Rhyl.

Alex Bidolak, master model builder at Legoland Discovery Centre in Manchester's told Heart it was lots of fun to make using eight thousand bricks. He added they hoped by making the mini version it would help raise awareness of the events taking place and encourage more women to sign up and take part.
