Registration is now open for people wanting to pound the pavements in Southend for the annual half marathon.

The popular event will take place on Sunday, June 11.

The course is fast, flat and traffic free making it ideal for first-time half marathon runners as well as a favourite for seasoned runners looking to achieve a personal best.

Once runners have completed their 13.1 miles, they will receive a special commemorative medal.

Every person who registers will be supporting Havens Hospices which includes Fair Havens and Little Havens.

Jane Hopkins, organiser of the event at Havens Hospices said: “Whether you’re running for fun, to remember a loved one or to achieve a personal best, every mile will be making such a difference to all the families we care for, ‘Making every day count’.”
