More than 2,500 runners will be hitting the streets of King's Lynn as the Grand East Anglia Run takes place on Sunday.

One of the region's biggest charity runs, the race features a route through the town centre, River Ouse pathway, The Walks and a number of historic buildings including Red Mount, the Custom House and Greyfriars Tower.

The 10K event, which starts at 10.45am, is being organised for the first time by Run For All, in partnership with Alive Leisure and King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council.

There will also be a Mini GEAR event – a 1.2-mile fun run for people of all ages and abilities (entrants must be 6 years and up) from Tuesday Market Place (10am start).

A number of town centre roads will be affected along with London Road and Wisbech Road, while Tuesday Market Place will be closed between 4am and 4pm. Other areas will have parking suspended for a short period.
