Sign Up To The Great Drag Race 2012

Help drag prostate cancer into the public eye — join a phalanx of fellas armed with frocks and wigs and run the Great Drag Race on Highbury Fields.

As with the inventive Sack Race earlier this year, it pays to have a puntastic edge to your fundraising fancy. The Great Drag Race acknowledges how successful women have been in highlighting health issues for their gender over the years, so you just have to have the balls to put on a dress to help raise awareness of the biggest cause of male cancer deaths in the UK. Oh, and £10 to register.

It doesn't matter how fit you are - it's a race in the loosest sense of the word. The distance is 10.2km, or "one long stockinged stride for each of the 10,200 men lost to the disease last year". But if you can only manage the last 10.2m, no one will mind.

In addition to the main cross-dressing scramble there will be live entertainment, food and a bar and the chance to help smash the Guinness World Record for the Longest Line of Dancing Drag Queens after you've sashayed/stumbled over the finish line.

The Great Drag Race takes place on Highbury Fields on Saturday 30 June from midday, race at 1.30pm, fun till 6pm. Sign up now.
