The annual event, which will take place on Saturday 7 October at 2pm has always been one of the highlights of the Barnack village calendar and organisers are appealing for volunteers to help marshal the course.

Organiser Emma Thorp said: “The fun run is a real community event and it’s a great way to bring people together. We are hoping lots of last year’s runners will return again and our school team can’t wait to compete against schools from across the area.

“We also need up to 50 volunteers to marshal the course and help out on the day. The event has been going for almost 20 years and continues to prove what a great tradition of cross country we have at the school and what a wonderful community we are part of. “
