The sixth running of the annual Morton Fun Run takes place this Sunday.

The two events that make up the fun run are aimed at all runners of all ages, and runners can enter in either the Morton Challenge, or the Morton Mile Family Fun Run.

Both events are off-road trail runs around the nature trail and paths circling the old Morton colliery, four miles north of Alfreton.

The Morton Challenge is a testing two lap 4.6km run which takes in two sharp ascents of the colliery mound and is for runners aged 12 and over; whilst the Morton Mile Family Fun Run is a single loop flat run aimed at runners aged 6 and over.

The events start at 11am from New Street playing fields in the centre of the village.

Full details of both the events, and entry forms, can be found on the event web site at
