The junior race for under 12s starts at 10am, with the ladies run at 10.30am and the mens run at 11.45am.

The races start and finish in the town centre and people can walk, jog or run.

The course takes in the beautiful Hubbard’s Hills.

There will be a safe area to leave bags and medical support available if needed.
