This year’s Bradley Stoke 10k Run, which takes place on Sunday 9th June, is almost full despite the entry limit being raised to accommodate a hundred more runners.
In recent years, the race has had a 500-entry limit, but organising club Sole Sisters say they have managed to increase their licence to 600 runners after the previous limit of 500 was reached weeks before raceday.
There are now fewer than 50 places left and a club spokesperson warned that there will be no ‘registration on the day’ this year.
With a record number of runners likely to line up in two weeks time, the club is renewing its appeal for volunteers who can spare a couple of hours on the day of the race.
Marshals need to be over the age of 16 and will be fully briefed before the start of the race.
Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to contact Sole Sisters through their website.
Entries are also being sought for the inaugural Bradley Stoke Charity Bed Race, also on Sunday 9th June.
Any organisation, club, society, association or company can enter a team of five, from which one person is required to be on the bed at any one time.
‘Beds’ must have a minimum of four wheels, but need not be an actual household bed. A number of activity stops will be positioned around the one-and-a-half mile course, at which all members of each team must perform tasks such as ‘apple bobbing’.
A trophy will be awarded to the team that completes the course in the fastest time having completed all the tasks in the correct manner. There will also be awards for ‘best bed’ and ‘best fancy dress’.
There is a £10 entry fee and teams are encouraged to obtain sponsorship to raise money for their chosen charity or the Mayor’s nominated charity.
Register your interest as a team or volunteer steward by contacting the event team at Re-energize on 0117 910 9515 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Both events are part of the 2013 Bradley Stoke Community Festival, which runs from Friday 7th June to Sunday 9th June.
