THE CRICKLADE Fun Run, 10k and Half Marathon Event will be held on Sunday October 5.

Cricklade attracts many local runners, as well as a large number of teams and individual runners who travel from much further afield, raising a substantial amount of money for charities and organisations as they go.

The organising committee would very much like to attract extra sponsorship this year to cover the cost of race numbers, timing chips and trophies.

Local people who'd rather not take part in the races are welcome to get involved on the day by helping to marshal the event.

Any prospective sponsors or marshals can contact Phillipa Knight on 01793 750556 to chat things through.

Athletes can enter the races by visiting or call into Cricklade Leisure Centre to pick up a registration form.
