A new race comes to town on Sunday when the inaugural Road2Recovery Half Marathon and Fun Run takes place.

The event has been organised by Claire Lomas, who recently walked the London 10,000 in a robotic Re-walk suit, and will set off from Eye Kettleby Lakes at 10.30am.

Around 300 runners have already entered the half-marathon which will follow a challenging, but scenic course, taking in Great Dalby, Little Dalby and skirting Burrough Hill Country Park.

The family 5k fun run will be held around Eye Kettleby Lakes, and a one-mile run has also been added. Ont-the-day entry for the one-mile fun run costs £5, and the 5k is £7.

There will also be a family entertainment area at the start/finish with inflatables and games for children, a magician, and a visit from Peppa Pig. Live music will be performed by Melton singing star George Simpson.

There will be a variety of refreshments including hog roast, burgers, hot dogs, cream teas, cakes, and hot and cold drinks. Entry is £3 per person for the day with unlimited rides.

All profits from the community event will go to the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation who are carrying out research into a cure for paralysis.
