Jenni Dawson, from St Giles Hospice, said there had been plenty of interest in the 2016 event.

“We’ve already received plenty of interest in our always-popular Lichfield 5K event,” she said. “But there’s still time for runners to register ahead of the run.

“It really doesn’t matter how much running experience you have or how quickly you complete the course – the important thing is to get out there and enjoy yourself while helping a good cause in your local community.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming runners for a fantastic day out to raise vital funds for St Giles Hospice.”

Registration begins at 9.15am, with the run itself set to start at 10am. Entry is £12 for those aged 15 and over and £6 for under 15s. People can sign up online.
