THE eighth Gerrards Cross fun run which attracts a huge number of people each year will be held in six weeks time.

This year’s 5km run will be on Sunday, May 11, from 11am to 4pm and there will be many activities for runners and supporters, including a BBQ.

The annual event often attracts over a thousand runners and since starting in 2001, it has raised over £200,000 for various charities.

This year organisers are hoping to raise around £25,000.
