The runners are limbering up in preparation for the Leighton Mile this Sunday – the town’s big Sport Relief event.
The event, organised by Leighton Fun Runners, takes place at Parson’s Recreation Ground and last year raised more than £5,000 for the cause.
Runners will start at the bandstand and entries are welcome on the day, although there have been about 160 online entries so far.
The timetable is:
10am: 10K race start
10.15am: 5K race start
10.20am: First 1 mile start
10.30am Second 1 mile start
The 1 mile route is completely contained within the park (marshals at all the exits) so orangisers say it will be very safe for young children.
For the 5k/10k, the route goes out and around Tiddenfoot Waterside Park.
