The countdown is on to the inaugural Hotelympia10K race, which is being staged to mark the opening day of this year's Hotelympia event in London's Docklands.
On the 19 February 2006, thousands of runners will take on the city circuit in a bid to raise money for Springboard Charitable Trust, the industry's careers and education charity.
As with all charity running events, fancy dress looks to be popular with a number of competitors due to appear in their chef whites and waiters uniforms.
In case the distance takes its toll, be assured that at least one hotel team is pushing a bed around the course.
You can enter and get more information about the event at www.hotelympia10k.com. It costs £29 for running club affiliates and £31 for everyone else.
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Race Line on 01451 812230, and hurry up as the closing date for entry is 31 January 2006.
