Say 'Pants' to male cancers

Any men in the Isle of Man who wanted to be Superman when they were little, have the opportunity to fulfil that ambition this weekend.

There's going to be a decorated pant dash along Douglas Promenade to raise awareness about male cancers, with participants encouraged to wear underpants over their trousers.

Sunday afternoon's Marathong been organised by Manx Cancer Help with support from the Isle of Man Anti-Cancer Association.

Care Co-ordinator Andrea Chambers says men don't like talking about diseases, so she hopes a fun event like this will help break down the barriers.

She says along Douglas Promenade there'll be plenty of things for the whole family to do including space hopping, face painting and skipping.

The pant race is open to men and women who want to show off their wares (audio file attached):
