Is it just me…

I assume that the ‘All’ applies to all those involved in the event.
So are you infact irritated that it’s women only?
Maybe part of the benefit in it being women only is that it encourages otherwise sedentry females to get off their arses thus reducing their own cancer risks.Posted 5 years ago
Sorry, I’ve just realised that the above makes me look like a proper tool, so in order to try and back-track / worm my way out of it I’d like to state that I think the events are great as they do get alot of women who wouldn’t normally run out running in a friendly and non-competitive environment, but just find the choice of words slightly odd!
The irritation is nothing to do with the charity / event but more to do with the language used in the adverts.Posted 5 years agopeterfileMember
It’s just advertising, a “catchy” slogan. The problem with these sorts of events (and something that is a great shame) is that they need to continually refresh them to bring them back into the attention of the public. I wouldn’t get too hung up on the words used, rather the sentiment behind what is trying to be achieved. 🙂Posted 5 years agoFrankensteinMember
No, but agree with OP it should be ALL meaning Males and Females.
Hence why we should raise awareness for prostate cancer with Men entering the event only and breast cancer for women only – just to raise awareness.
There are plenty of events for both sexes to take part too.Posted 5 years agobigyinnMember
In defence of the OP I feel kinf of irked also, but hten I am a mardy bastard. The irony is, quite a lot of those who take part, I suspect, won’t do anything else physical for the rest of the year, which probably isn’t going to do them any favours in the long term either.
Perhaps there should be a male equivalent for prostrate cancer, perhaps like not shaving for a month…. hang on a MO 😉Posted 5 years ago
