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.
