MORE than 100 people dressed as Batman and Robin are expected to turn out for a roaring good fundraiser in Market Rasen.

The town’s Lions Club is organising a 5k Only Fools No Horses Fun Run and Walk at Market Rasen Racencourse on Sunday, October 2.

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

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

Fundraising activities Chairman, Lion Jane Hills said: “You don’t have to be a good runner to enter, we welcome all levels.

“We have an entry limit of 150 places, so please register early if you can, as we hope this will be a popular event.

“The entrants will receive a warm up session at 11am before heading off around the safe and pleasant running environment of the inner track at the picturesque 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.
