Players and officials from Morecambe Football Club are preparing to take part in the first JWK Half Marathon this weekend.

The half marathon will start at Salt Ayre sports centre on Sunday, November 3.

Runners will set off from Salt Ayre heading along the cycle track to the Millennium Bridge and then to Conder Green. After that they will head past Lancaster Golf Club and rejoin the cycle path so that they can run back to Salt Ayre.

The Shrimps team includes Lizzie Hough who is responsible for corporate sales and events, club doctor Trevor Fleet, player and reserves manager Stewart Drummond and club director Graham Howse.

They are splitting the route into four legs so they will effective run a relay race.

Proceeds from the event will go to St John’s Hospice in Lancaster.
