A local running race is to cause widespread disruption due to several town centre roads closing next weekend.

The Recipharm Gear 10K is heading to the streets of King's Lynn on Sunday (May 5).

The run, supported by King's Lynn Town Council, will start at 9.30am and take runners on a loop around the town centre.

To make the event safe for the competitors, a number of road closures will come into action from 4.30am until 4pm.
