Forbes Solicitors is again sponsoring Run Preston, the city's annual running event.
The event will see over 1,500 competitors take part while hundreds of spectators gather to watch. Many Forbes' staff are getting involved and will be competing against each other in the workplace challenge which is part of the 5k run.
Even those who are not participating can enjoy the event, cheering on runners and looking out for friends and family. There is a morning full of entertainment featuring a guest band, the Guild Hall roadshow, the mobile climbing wall, and various stalls, all centred around the covered market in the heart of the city.
Forbes Managing Partner Winston Hood comments, "Forbes is delighted to again sponsor Run Preston which is a fantastic event in the city. Many Forbes' staff are taking part and the event is an ideal opportunity for the people of Preston to get involved!"
Phil Walsh, Race Director comments, "Run Preston is a fantastic day of activity with a 5k, 10k and Fun Run all starting and finishing at the Covered Market in the city centre. The races are open to all abilities and we want to encourage as many people as possible to take part, no matter what level they are at. The course for 5 and 10k takes in the beautifully restored Avenham and Miller parks by the riverside."
