The chance to take part in the Garstang annual charity run is still open.

This year’s seven mile race on Sunday, March 20, will be supporting the charity Facial Palsy UK.

The race is organised by Garstang Running Club and the charity was chosen after two of the club’s members discovered their child suffered from facial palsy and has to receive regular treatment.

All proceeds from the race will be donated to Facial Palsy UK whose mission is for every person in the UK affected by facial palsy to be given access to the best information, treatment and support available.

Registration for the race is at the Garstang sports and social club house next to the football pitch from 9.30am. The race starts at The Royal Oak at 11am. The club has permission to close Bridge Street from 10.55am to allow a safe start to the race. The route is through mainly rural areas and although not flat it does ignore some of the higher hills.

For further information on taking part in the race, you can email Frank Miller on frankmiller_bhs@hotmail.com or go on the club’s website www.garstangrc.co.uk to enter online.
