Runners with a spring in their step are being encouraged to grab their trainers and register for a charity event.
Hundreds will be descending on Oaken Grove Park at 9.30am, on Sunday, April 6, for the Maidenhead Rotary Club’s annual 5km Bunny Fun Run, now in its third year.
The club expects this to be the biggest yet and is encouraging adults and children of all abilities to sign up.
Members were at the Nicholsons Centre on Friday and Saturday, March 14-15, encouraging people to register.
"Everyone is welcome," said organiser Stephan Stephan.
"People don’t have to run. We have people who come along with prams and dogs.
"It’s magic. It’s a buzz from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave."
All entrants will be given free T-shirts, bunny ears, bows ties and tails on arrival and everyone who finishes the race will receive a special bunny medal.
Paralympic gold medal winning rower, Naomi Riches, who is also hoping to participate, will be awarding prizes.
The event will raise money for Rotary charities as well as the nominated charities of sponsored runners.
