The Ali Brownlee Riverside Run was renamed last year in honour of the local broadcasting legend who died last February after a short battle with cancer.

The event is staged by Middlesbrough Council and leisure services partner Everyone Active and features a popular 5k route taking in some of the town’s iconic landmarks including Temenos and the Transporter Bridge before a memorable finish beside the hallowed turf inside the Riverside Stadium.

Race Director Jimmy Wattis said: “We’re looking forward to another record-breaking Riverside Run, and the entries are already starting to pour in.

“Our sponsors play a key part in ensuring we can lay on a truly memorable day for all those taking part.

“There’s still plenty of time to get in shape, so I’d urge as many people as possible to snap up the remaining places.”

Darren Roulston, Senior Protection Advisor at Bepsoke Financial, said: “We are delighted and extremely honoured to be asked to be a part of the Ali Brownlee 2K Fun Run.

Chris Smith, executive director of service delivery and development at Thirteen, said: “As the largest housing provider in the Tees Valley, we're delighted to be supporting this year’s 5k, which really brings people in the town and wider community together and promotes health and wellbeing.”
