Stubbington Green Runners will be taking over the volunteer roles and looking to provide pacers from 20 minutes, for every two minutes up to 40 minutes, as well as a run, walk pacer.

It's always a popular occasion and lots of runners will no doubt be looking to achieve personal bests, or particular target times on the day.

Meanwhile, Rob Greenwood finished in first position for the 16th time at Lee parkrun on Saturday.
