MORE than 170 people have now signed up for the 21st annual Hoylake 10K Coastal charity fun run.

Taking place on Sunday, September 14, the Globe-backed event raises funds for a special needs club in the town.

It starts outside Hoylake Community Centre in Hoyle Road at 11am.

More than 600 people braved the wind and rain for last year’s event, raising £8,500.

Race secretary Carla Williams told the Globe: "We're still weeks away from this year's event, and the number of people who have registered so far is encouraging.

"The 10k is terribly important to the Wednesday Special Needs Club as it is our major fundraiser and all the funds raised from the event go towards the Sensory Resource’s upkeep and maintenance, which is maintained by a small group of enthusiastic volunteers."
