Boxing Day run invitation

PUBLISHED: 10:53 17 December 2010

Bungay Black Dog Running Club have issued an open invitiation to runners to take part in their annual Boxing Day cross country run run on Bungay Common.

The start of the race, at 10.30am, is by the lake and takes runners across fields to the riverside. Competitors follow the river and then head back across fields towards the common, where they then follow paths back to the lake.

There are trophies for first, second and third placed males and females in all age categories and adult races.

The race is divided into two, with a one lap race (two-and-a-half miles) for juniors aged nine and over and a two lap race (five miles) for adults who want a bigger challenge.

The race welcomes both serious and fun runners and this year there is a trophy for the best fancy dress runner and also the muddiest runner.

The route may be wet and muddy and suitable footwear should be used.

The race is becoming very popular so arrive in good time. Registration will open at 9.40am.
