Admission is £3 and refundable if £10 minimum sponsorship is gained.

There will be medals for finishers as well as prizes for best fancy dress and most sponsorship.

From noon there is also a barbecue and a performance from John Rockliffe from 2pm.

Other attractions include a bouncy castle, face painting, stalls, raffle and tyre tennis.
