ENTRIES are now open for this year’s Timberhonger 10k and Children’s Challenge held at Sanders Park on Saturday, July 13.

The group, who will standout in their distinctive orange running kits, will also help marshal the area by turning the junction of Timberhonger Lane and Berry Lane into ‘Kingfisher Corner’ for the evening.

Club chairman Ernie Heaton said: “We had a lot of fun supporting the event last year because it’s local, it’s fun and there’s just a wee slope!

“We’re very proud and hope to be involved for many years to come.”

This will be the 17th Timberhonger 10k which has seen more than £50,000 for local good causes raised over the years.

This year event will be supporting the Primrose Hospice, Libby Mae’s Little Angels, and the Midlands Air Ambulance.
