RUNNERS are invited to take part in the Action Heart 5K Challenge at Baggeridge Country Park, Sedgley, next week.

The event, being held on Thursday June 26 from 7pm, is open to adults and youngsters aged 12 or over and is suitable for runners of all abilities.

All entrants will receive a memento of the event and incentives are on offer for runners raising sponsorship for Action Heart.

Last year’s event raised £2,500 for the Dudley based charity, which cares for the borough’s heart patients, and fundraising bosses hope to up the total this time to around £3,000.
