Former Olympian joins Southwold race

A former Olympian will be among the runners making their way round Southwold in the second Adnams 10k race next month.

Running legend Steve Cram, who won six gold medals at the Commonwealth Games, European and World Championships and a silver Olympic medal during his career, will be joining hundreds of fundraising athletes taking part in the event on Sunday November 21.

Mr Cram will be joined by his BBC Sport colleague Allison Curbishly and local athletes Abbie Thorrington and Helen Decker for the run.

Adnams' head of corporate affairs, Emma Hibbert, said: 'Quite a few of the team here at Adnams are runners so last year we thought it would be a great idea to organise an event on our home turf.

'Last year we raised �5,000 for the Prince's Trust Million Makers Challenge and this year all proceeds will be split between the Adnams Charity and Suffolk SportsAid Destination Gold Project.

'We're hugely honoured that Steve and Allison are able to join us as our special guests to add to the occasion. It was a great event last year, with many club runners starting alongside those competing in a race for their first time.'

The race starts at 12pm at the Harbour Inn in Southwold, finishing at South Green by the Red Lion pub.
