The event, organised by Stratford District Council, is open to people of all ages and abilities to take part. Participants can choose to run or walk one, three or six miles on a circular route around the recreation ground.

Mass warm up sessions start at 10am. Races start at 10.30am for three and six miles and 11am and 11.15am for one-mile participants.

Although online entry has now closed, participants can turn up on the day with their entry fee to register and take part.

Those who are entering on the day have been asked to arrive at the recreation ground from 9.45am. Entry costs £6 for adults, £3 for children and £15 for a family of four.

In mid-February, television presenter Davina McCall cycled through Stratford and Shipston-on-Stour as part of her seven-day Sport Relief challenge to cycle, swim and run more than 500 punishing miles, from Edinburgh to London.

During her challenge she stopped off for lunch at the Macdonald Alveston Manor hotel, in Stratford, on the penultimate day of her Beyond Breaking Point challenge.

The highs and lows of her challenge were captured for a documentary Davina: Beyond Breaking Point which was aired on BBC One last night (Thursday) at 9pm.
