Other principle sponsors B1st Sports and Leisure shop in Beccles and ASDA Lowestoft have also contributed so that each runner will also pick up a medal and goody bag as a memento of the day.

Each year the race gets bigger and attracts both experienced and novice runners from all over England. Interested runners can still enter via the race website or before 10 30am on race day.
