Entries are now open for this year's annual New Year's Day Fun Run. Last year, 196 runners took part and this year the organisers, Beverley Westwood Lions Club, are hoping to beat that. There are two distances for the 2017 new years day event: 3K and 10K. Runners for both distances will start at the market place at 11am.

The event has a great family atmosphere and is a fun way to blow away the cobwebs and start the new year. The 2016 Beverley Family Fun Run raised £300 for local charities.

Registration for the event opens at 9:30am at the Market Cross in Saturday Market and the entrance fee will be £3 for the 3K route and £5 for the longer 10K option. For more information, contact or ring 01482 866696.
