Runners of all abilities are being encouraged to enter this year’s Burnham-On-Sea’s Half Marathon, which takes place on Sunday October 5th.

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

The runners will 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 along Berrow Road.

Entry fees are £18 for UKA affiliated runners and £20 for others. Entry is limited to 500 competitors. The postal entries deadline is 23rd September, however online entry is available here. There will be an extra £2 for entries on the day.

There will also be a one-mile fun run for younger runners, with entry costing just £2 per person. For more information, contact the organiser Brian Beale from Burnham Harriers Club on 01934 732310.
