Sharon Nash, from Run Breckland, said: "You could cheer on the runners down King Street, or maybe join in the Zumba at the Guildhall, in the Market Place, at 9.45am.

"It would be nice if there were spectators to cheer the runners on and show them appreciation."

The route will start in the Market Place at 10am and include King Street, Riverside Walk, Bridge Street, Nun's Bridges and Butten Island.

Town mayor, councillor Roy Brame, and his wife, Karen, will also be there and it believed that the mayor will run down King Street with the runners in ceremonial dress, while the mayoress will be handing out the finisher's medals at the end of the run.

If you would like to help the event, call Run Breckland on 07885 331566 or email runbreckland@btinternet.com.
