THERE are just a handful of places left for budding athletes who want to take part in the Sandy 10 run later this month.
The annual 10-mile race, whose proceeds go to St John’s Hospice Sue Ryder Care in Moggerhanger, takes place at Sandy Sports Centre on Sunday March 25.
Most of the 600 places in the competition have been allocated but there were a few left as the Advertiser went to press yesterday.
Central Beds councillor and two-times Potton fun run champion Adam Zerny will be taking part and he met up with race director Nigel Bush on Saturday for some training.
Cllr Zerny, who ran the London Marathon in 2005, said tongue-in-cheek he thought councillors in Central Beds had been underrepresented in the race for a number of years.
"I’m delighted to be supporting the Sandy 10, especially given any profits go to St John’s Hospice," he said.
"I’ve done a little training and aim to be the highest placed Central Bedfordshire councillor."
