The course is an enjoyable three miles or 4.8k. It is a safe cross country run, with two short road sections with marshals.

Suitable for all: families young, old, serious runners in lycra, or fun-lovers in fancy dress. Entrants can run, jog, or walk, and dogs on leads are welcome to join in the fun.

Entry to the race is £5, and families are welcome, with a family ticket costing £10.

The starting pistol will be fired at 11am, and entries will be accepted on the day from an hour beforehand.

The race begins and ends on the playing field, on Whissonsett Road.

There will be a BBQ, cake sale, and prize raffle after the race is over.
