More than 30 people have signed up to join the Delamore team running in the annual GEAR race at King’s Lynn.
The race takes place in King’s Lynn on Sunday May 1 and there are still places left for anybody who wants to join the team.
Delamore managing director Wayne Eady said: “Many of you will remember a couple of years ago when myself and the team entered a local 10km race in Kings Lynn to raise funds for the Macmillan nurses.
“It’s been a while since we did anything and so in only three weeks time we are doing it again.
“This time we will be running for two good causes, The Alzheimers Society and Cancer Research UK.

A celebratory barbeque is being held at the firm’s site in Wisbech St Mary where all runners in the teams are welcome to go along.

The Grand East Anglia Run (GEAR) began life as a ‘regeneration’ idea with an aim of highlighting King’s Lynn’s historic buildings while introducing people to the town’s newly refurbished shopping centre.
A half marathon was considered but quickly changed to a shorter and more favoured distance of 10k.
Though successful, the original two-lap course was not ideal so a new one-lap course was devised which takes runners along the river bank to South Lynn and started and finishes in the Tuesday Market Place.
In 2009 the event received a gold grading from the British Association of Road Races and in 2010 a fun run was added to the event, the Mini GEAR Fun Run, so people under 15 had a chance to join in with a 1.2 mile run.
