ENTRIES for this year?s Wargrave 10km race have opened.

The 33rd annual event will take place on Sunday, June 14 and will be part of the village?s biennial festival.

Competitors will set off from the recreation ground at 10am and run through Cockpole Green and Crazies Hill before finishing back at the field off Recreation Road.

More than 500 runners took part in last year?s race, which raised £4,000 for local charities.

The race has been selected as the event for the Berkshire County Championships and there will also be a mile-long children?s fun run at 9am.

Entry costs £17 or £15 for Wargrave Runners members and under-18s. Entries on the day will cost £20.

Nuffield Health, which is sponsoring this year?s event, will be offering free training sessions for those who have signed up for the race.

The sessions will be held at the gym at the Piggott School in Twyford Road every Tuesday from April 21.

Race entrants will also be offered an eight-week membership for a discounted price of £40 from April 1.

Children have been invited to take part in a poster competition to help advertise the race and the winning entry will be posted up around the village.

Entries should be on A4 paper with the name, age and school of the artist and can be sent to Wargrave Runners, 37 Ridgeway, Wargrave.

Last year?s poster competition was won by eight-year-old Eyla Wild, from Robert Piggott Junior School, who drew her and her friends taking part in the fun run.
