One of the town’s major sporting events is set to attract thousands of athletes and supporters to Worksop on Sunday.

The Worksop Half Marathon and Fun Run will both take place in the town centre for the 33rd time.

Worksop Harriers organise the event, that will begin at 10am from Newgate Street, adjacent to Worksop Town Hall and the market place.

The fun run will start at 10.15am from the same place.

A host of local organisations aid the athletics club with the planning, running and promotion of the races – which as in previous years will take on a Halloween theme.

The Harriers call on Bassetlaw Council, Notts County Council, Vision Express, Asics, SweatShop, GK Ford, EVE Barriers, Glynn Webb, Clumber Park National Trust, the police and fire service, St John’s Ambulance Service, the Worksop Guardian, er, Worksop College, Worksop Golf Club, RunnersWorld Online, Front Runner, SportSystems, Raynet and all the official time keepers and marshals, along with members and families of the Harriers.

Next week’s Worksop Guardian will carry results and pictures from the 2014 event.
