There will be free face paints for the kids. Your little'un will also get a giant helium balloon - you'll be well jealous!


The top 3 men and women will get a trophy each. There is also a running club team prize and awards for the first to finish in age categories from age 35 - 70.


After running 10k you'll be knackered. Thankfully you can get a free post-race massage to sort you legs out.
