A gratuitous plug for a very different running race being staged during the first weekend of the Olympic Games......
It's a 5km track race where runners complete eight laps of the track, and then have to eat three doughnuts, before heading on for eight more laps and the finish line.
All in aid of the Hampshire Autistic Society, which being held on Sunday, July 29th at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth.
Bet this is one race you've never tried before! Makes for an interesting risk assessment!
