Countdown begins for Batman and Robin race

THERE is not long left to sign up for a fun Batman and Robin run at Market Rasen Racecourse.

More than 100 people dressed as Batman and Robin are expected to turn out for the 5k Only Fools No Horses Fun Run and Walk organised by the town’s Lions Club.

The Lions are reminding anyone wanting to take part, entry forms must be completed and returned before the day – Sunday, October 2 - in order to get a race number and sponsor form.

The event name was inspired by the 1996 Christmas edition of Only Fools and Horses featuring Del and Rodney as Batman and Robin.

The club’s fundraising activities chairman Jane Hills said: “You don’t have to be a good runner to enter, we welcome all levels.”

Entrants will receive a warm up session at 11am before heading off around the inner track Market Rasen Racecourse.

There will be a commemorative medal at the finish line for everyone who completes the course and prizes for the best dressed Batman and Robin and for those raising the most money in sponsorship.

Charities and organisations will be able to raise money for their own good causes through sponsorship.

Entry fees for the event are £6 for adults and £3 for students and 150 places are available. For more details and entry forms visit or phone Graham on 0845 8332795.
