A CHARITY has issued a rallying call for runners to take part in a Sheffield 5km race.

Meningitis UK is hosting a Big Fun Run - one of 23 events taking place throughout the country this summer - at Rother Valley Country Park on Sunday, August 5.

As many people as possible are now being recruited to take part in the race, which covers about 3.1 miles.

Every participant will be part of the ‘Meningitis Musketeers’ team and will receive a free running vest or T-shirt, and a handy information pack including hints and tips on how to prepare.

Proceeds from the run will go to the charity’s Search 4 A Vaccine campaign, which aims to raise £7 million to fund research.
