    The 9th annual Bespak Grand East Anglia Run will be taking place on May the 4th, which coincides with Star Wars Day.  The costumes are also a reminder that whilst this is a serious athletics event, it is also an opportunity for fun runners to raise cash for local charities.

    The Bespak Grand East Anglia Run and Mini GEAR fun run will start at 10.30am in the newly-revamped Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn, the fast, flat course takes runners on a loop through the Vancouver Quarter and town centre, through The Walks and along the waterfront, showcasing some of the town’s key heritage and retail areas.

    The British Masters Athletic Federation (BMAF) is the governing body for all Master (or Veteran) athletes in the UK. They have a network of 11 regional clubs that can be joined when anyone reaches the age of 35 years or older.  The local regional club is Eastern Veterans A.C. (EVAC) whose championship was hosted by Bespak GEAR last year.

    Membership of EVAC (or one of the other regional clubs) includes registration with the BMAF.  Anyone aged over 35 and registered with BMAF will be eligible to compete in the Championship that Bespak GEAR 2014 is hosting.

    The Bespak GEAR is a UKA and BARR Gold-Graded event. The cost of entry is £17 for affiliated runners and £19 for unaffiliated runners. To enter, runners must be aged 15 or over on race day. The Bespak Mini GEAR 1.2m fun run is open to anyone over 6 years of age (under 8s must be accompanied by an adult). The cost of entry for Bespak Mini GEAR is £6.00 for adults, £5.00 for under 16s and £4.00 for under 8s.

    Bespak GEAR is subsidising the entry to this year’s BMAF Championship so there is no extra charge to enter. Entrants will simply need to input their membership number into the online entry form.

    There are generous cash prizes for Bespak GEAR category winners and everyone taking part will receive a quality medal and goody bag.
