Then we want to hear from you.

Just some of the many runners we covered last year included Stacey Harper, who aimed for a world record by running dressed as Elvis to raise money for her cousin’s seven-year-old son, and paralysed singer Simon Kindleysides, who walked it in a exoskeleton suit.

Lucy Ring, from Old Catton, took part in memory of her late father Mark, a keen runner who suffered a cardiac arrest after taking part in a race, and visually impaired triathlete Iain Dawson raised money for the national disability charity Sense.

Whether you are running for a charity that has helped you, or for a relative or friend, we would like to hear your stories, sent via email to simon.parkin@archant.co.uk
