PORT Sunlight's third 10k charity run takes place next month in aid of Wirral Autistic Society.

Entries are coming in thick and fast for the 10k and 5k events, and there is still time to register to take part.

Race director Alan Rothwell said: "This is always a very popular event due to its unique setting.

"Entries are well up on last year so if you're planning to run you need to enter quickly to avoid disappointment – places are filling up fast and we are nearly at capacity.

“There is a full programme of events and activity, so I'd encourage runners to bring their family and friends and enjoy a full day out in Port Sunlight."

The running events form part of a full day of activity co-ordinated by Port Sunlight Museum & Garden Village.

The group's Nigel Chapman-Rogers said: "This is a real family day out with plenty of activity taking place on the village green.

"Visitors will enjoy live music and dance all day, from Samba and Swing to Jazz and Brass.

“We’ve got some delicious international food and drink exhibitors including Corks Out, the Pizza Peddlers, Dixies Kitchen, Caarma Curries, and the new Manna Foods Deli."

For the first time there will be two junior cycle races in the afternoon, organised by Port Sunlight Wheelers.

The event takes place on Sunday, May 11.
