Taunton 10k race on Sunday
6:30am Friday 27th September 2013 in Somerset
LOCAL runner Luke Scott is hoping to clinch his sixth consecutive Taunton 10k title on Sunday.
Luke, a member of Taunton Athletics Club, is one of the 650 runners who are competing at the annual event, starting at Blackbrook Pavilion at 11am.
The field will make their way around Holway and out to Stoke St Mary before heading back through Haydon to the finishing line at Blackbrook Pavilion.
Race director John Lewis said the first runners are expected home in around 32 minutes and everyone should complete the race inside 90 minutes.
He added: “There’s likely to be some traffic congestion in Lisieux Way and Chestnut Drive for the start when there will be a brief closure to get the runners away safely.”
The event is being organised by the Taunton and District Carnival Committee.
