Langtoft could be welcoming a record number of runners to the village when its annual 3k fun run and 10k road race takes place this Sunday.
Entries have been coming in fast over the past couple of weeks and numbers for the 10k are already close to last year’s total.
Organisers hope to be able to accept entries on the day, at the playing fields off Manor Way. However, to avoid any disappointment, they are advising people to keep an eye on the Langtoft Road Run website at www.lang toftroadrun.btck.co.uk for the latest information.
The 3k, which includes a school team challenge, starts at 10.15am, with the 10k following an hour later.
Both races start on West End and finish on the playing fields, with the 10k also taking in Greatford and Barholm.
Money raised from the event will be donated to local groups and organisations later in the year.
Interest around this year’s races has been boosted by the involvement of new sponsor Empire Gym, based in Church Street, Market Deeping.
