Hundreds of runners of all age groups are set to put their best foot forward for charity when they take part in a fun run in a Suffolk resort town this weekend.

The annual Felixstowe Fun Run will be taking place this Bank Holiday Monday, May 6, when participants will be able to do a sponsored run or walk around a mile-long course near the seafront.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Felixstowe, the event starts at 11am and involves running or walking a measured circuit centred on the Spa Pavilion theatre as many times as possible in the space of an hour.

The run is an opportunity to raise money for a club, society or deserving cause.

Entry fees are £7 for adults and £5 for people aged 16 and under, with the money going towards supporting deserving local causes chosen by the Rotary Club.

There is also the opportunity to run the course in fancy dress, with cash prizes of £60, £45, £30 and £15 for the four most eye-catching entrants.

A rotary club spokesperson said: "The 2024 Rotary Club of Felixstowe Fun Run is open to everyone and is a great way to get sponsorship to raise funds for a charity or organisation of your choice. 

"Why not run in fancy dress? Four cash prizes will go to the most eye-catching runners or teams."

On the day, registered entrants can collect their vest running numbers from the desks in the theatre between 9.30am and 11am, which can be accessed through the stage doors at the rear of the theatre.
