Fun run around the lake planned for Comic Relief

Have your say

SOME of Doncaster’s top amateur athletes are set to help boost Comic Relief at the weekend.

Doncaster Athletics Club and the Lynx martial arts academy will be among the organisations taking part in a Saturday fundraiser at the Lakeside Village shopping centre.

The main event will be the Funny Runny Red Nose Fun Run.

The public will be asked to have their red noses at the ready and take part in a fun run, starting at 11.30am from the shopping centre, at White Rose Way.

People who take part can don fancy dress and run around the lake to raise money.

The route will be a 1.8 mile round trip and organisers say walking or even pushing a pushchair is perfectly acceptable instead of running.

Entrants are asked to register at 11am.

There will also be entertainment on hand with a children’s magic show with Silly Billy at 11am, 12.20pm and 3pm.

Lynx Blackbelt Leadership Academy will be demonstrating martial arts several times throughout the day. They perform at noon, 12.45pm and 1.40pm.

Children will also be able to take part in activities including bean bag races, dribbling a ball between cones and throwing foam turbo javelins.
