130 runners ready for today's Burnham-On-Sea Half Marathon

More than 130 runners will be taking part in today's Burnham-On-Sea's Half Marathon.

The starting gun will be fired at 11am at Burnham's BASC Ground to signal the start of the annual 13-mile run.

Motorists are being advised to take extra care as the runners head along Love Lane and Queen's Drive, before turning left along the A38 towards Brent Knoll and then on to East Brent, Lympsham, Wick Road and Red Road, before returning to Burnham via Berrow Road.

Organiser Brian Beale from Burnham Harriers Club told "We're expecting more entries on the day due to the good weather and will be accepting late entries right up until 10.30am. We are looking forward to a great event."

Entry fees are £20 for UKA affiliated runners and £22 for others. There will also be a one-mile fun run, with entry costing £2 per person.

He added that the club is grateful to the event's sponsors, Highbridge's M5 Glass and Proper Job of Burnham.

We'll have full coverage of the event, plus full results, later in the day.
