Race organisers are looking forward to staging a popular village run thanks to the continued support of a major sponsor.

Bourne based prepared salads company Bakkavor has once again donated £200 to organisers of the Thurlby 10k and Fun Run.

Along with sponsorship from several other local companies, the donation will go towards set-up costs for this year’s event, allowing any profits from the race to be donated to the 1st Thurlby Scouts, Thurlby Primary School and Lawrence Park.

Race fundraiser John Ogden said: “We are very grateful to Bakkavor and our other sponsors for their continued support over the years.”

This year’s event takes place on Sunday, July 6. There will be a 3km fun run around Thurlby starting at 10.15am followed by the 10km race to Manthorpe, Wilsthorpe and Obthorpe.
