ATHLETES from the Whitby area are being challenged to put on their running shoes and have a go at the Mulgrave Run.
The 10km multi-terrain race, organised by Loftus and Whitby Athletics Club, starts at finishes at Mulgrave Community sports ground in Lythe and takes place mainly through the scenic Mulgrave Woods.
Organisers are trying to raise the profile of the race as in previous years, it has been under-subscribed.
The Fitness Machine in Whitby is donating a prize for the first unattached athlete (not a member of a club).
There are good cash prizes for other categories.
Entry forms can be downloaded from www.loftus-ac.co.uk in the fixtures/road running section.
