Organisers of tomorrow's second Bespak Great East Anglia Run (Sunday, May 6, 10.30am) in King's Lynn have advised competitors and spectators to arrive early to avoid road closures and parking restrictions.

Roads around the town centre route will be closed at 9.45am before re-opening again at midday. This year's event starts and finishes in the Tuesday Market Place. The South Gate entrance to the town will be closed but the Knights Hill and Gayton Road arterial routes remain open.

The wheelchair race - which features Paralympic great Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson - is scheduled to start at 10.29am, followed a minute later by the main race. The event has attracted over 1,800 entries. Jean Ndayisenga, from the central African country of Burundi, is expected to challenge the mark set in last year's inaugural event by Kenya's Patrick Musyoki, who dipped under 30 minutes.
