More than 600 ready for Hoylake 10k
MORE than six hundred people will take part in the Hoylake 10k coastal run tomorrow.
The Globe-backed event raises funds for a special needs club in the town. It starts at 11am outside Hoylake Community Centre.
So far, 602 people have registered and you can sign up on the day.
Among the runners is Marathon man Eddie Mountford is pounding the road again after a two year illness, at the age of 90.
Eddie has taken part in more than 30 full marathons over the past 40 years.
He will be joined by daughter Gillian Quinn from Thingwall and grandsons Darren Quinn, 23, Mark Lennon, 28 and Paul Lennon, 32.
Gillian said: "Everyone is so proud of dad for running again. He is so popular with everyone who knows him.
"Last year he was invited to launch the Liverpool half-marathon. He hasn't run for two years through ill health but he started running again this year and targeted the Hoylake race as his first comeback challenge."
Last year a record 823 people took part, raising more than £9,000.
Putting the runners under starters orders was Wirral West MP Esther McVey.
First man across the finish line was Greg Jones from Wallasey AC in 33 minutes 59 seconds.
First woman to finish was Sophie Hunt, also from Wirral AC, in 38 mins and 10 seconds.
