SPACES are filling up fast for the annual 'Run For It!' fun run at Thruxton circuit and this year, hosted by Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

Entrants are being asked to dress up for the day in 'Emergency Services’ themed outfits, such as nurses, a doctors, a paramedic, fireman or policemen. Each runner who takes part in fancy dress will be entered into a prize draw to find the best dressed entrant.

The circuit is 3.793km (2.356 miles) and this year there is an option to run a half marathon distance, which is six laps of the circuit, for those who want more of a challenge.

The event takes place on Sunday, September 14, and is open to all ages. Entrants can raise money for the charity of their choice.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance will host the event, which means that by signing up and paying a registration fee the air ambulance will benefit, but sponsorship raised can be donated to any other charity.
