The streets of Preston are set to be flooded by the sound of pounding trainers in Guild Year.

A series of running events will take place across the city including a special one off Guild Marathon and half marathon.

Thousands of runners will take on a route that will start and finish in the city centre, taking on Penwortham, Cottam, Lea Town, Salwick and Treales in the process.

The city will be shut down for the day as the marathon takes place on Sunday 28th October and registration is already open.
