RUNNERS have just over two weeks to enter an annual road race which takes place next month.

More than 1,450 people from across the region took part in last year’s Darlington Sherwoods Vauxhall 10k, and organisers hope to attract more this year.

The event, on Sunday, August 10, will raise money for Darlington Town Mission and St Teresa’s Hospice after being nominated by Darlington Rotary Club.

As well as the 10k event, which starts at 10am, a family fun run will also be held at 9am.

The race will be chiptimed and text results will be available for those who provide a mobile telephone number.

Runners have until Friday, August 1 to enter the race.
