A King's Lynn-based charity for armed forces families will benefit from this year's Grand East Anglia Run in the town.

Scotty's Little Soldiers, which supports more than 300 children who have lost a parent who was serving in the military, is the official charity partner of the Mini GEAR - a 1.2k family run which takes place before the main 10k event gets under way.

Race organisers Run For All have 150 free school places to give away. Each school can apply for up to 10. Any schools interested should e-mail

This year's event takes place on Sunday, May 6. From the start/finishing line on the Tuesday Market Place, the main 10k route takes in Lynn's historic quarter, Ouse waterfront and The Walks.

Other charity partners include the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, West Norfolk Mind, and Norfolk-based Big C.
