The sec­ond stag­ing of the Church Teach­ers’ Col­lege 5k road race run and walk will take place in Man­dev­ille to­day. The race was first or­gan­ised with con­sid­er­able suc­cess last year with more than 200 par­tic­i­pants.

The race starts at the in­sti­tu­tion’s premises on Manch­ester Road, takes a route fur­ther south, be­fore re­turn­ing to its base. The school has been able to at­tract ma­jor spon­sor­ship from Manch­ester Co-op Credit Union. Prizes will be of­fered in all age cat­e­gories. Reg­is­tra­tion can be done on­line at fit­

De­fend­ing cham­pi­ons in the walk cat­e­gory are Jon Oliphant for male and Natasha McKen­zie for fe­males. Both are al­ready signed up.
