A record turn-out is expected for this Sunday’s Run Northumberland Bamburgh 10k, with almost 400 people entered.

This flat road race starts at Bamburgh Castle, goes through the village, heads towards Seahouses and then goes back up the coast road and finishes at the castle.

The headquarters is Bamburgh Pavilion, which is located in front of the castle.

Entrants must be over the age of 16 on the day of the race, which starts at 10am.
