MORE than 200 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.

So far, 235 have signed up for this year.

Urging our readers to sign up, Race secretary Carla Williams told the Globe: "There have been so many charity runs like this over the summer, so it's probably the case that people have meant to sign up for the 10k and have just forgotten, because they have taken part in other runs.

"Numbers have been a little down on the same time last year. So, if you haven't done so, now's the time to register.

"The 10k is terribly important to the Wednesday Special Needs Club as it is our major fundraiser.

"Everyone who takes part is running for a very good cause, because the club's sensory resource soft play centre depends on them.

"All funds raised from the event go towards its upkeep and maintenance."
