More than 120 runners will be taking part in today’s Burnham-On-Sea 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 Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We have 116 runners registered and are expecting more entries on the day. Poeple can register on Sunday morning up until 10.30am.”
Entry fees are £18 for UKA affiliated runners and £20 for others. Entry is limited to 500 competitors. 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 on the day.
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.
