The event, sponsored by town estate agents Lovelles, will start from Church Street at 10am.

The Market Place will act as the race village, where race numbers and timing chips can be collected on the day from 8.30am.

The first male and female finishers will each receive a £25 meal voucher, which has been donated by the Advocate Arms, as well as a £25 voucher donated by Lincolnshire Runner.

Entries can also be made on the day for £20.

The event will also be aiming to raise money for the mayor’s charities - Air Ambulance and Flights for Life.
