The popular fundraising event in aid of Cancer Research UK, gives runners of all abilities, the chance to complete a 5k or 10k for the cause.

Many who take part have survived cancer themselves, or are participating in memory or celebration of loved ones.

Last year’s event saw almost 2000 people take part raising thousands for the charity.

Anyone wishing to take part in Sunday’s fundraiser must pre-register online, ideally a minimum of 48 hours before the event.

The 10k event begins at 9.30am, while the 5k sets off at 11.30am to avoid congestion on the course.

A Cancer Research UK spokesman said: “Every pound raised in sponsorship helps more people survive and will bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
