Today's races will feature half marathon and a full marathon - both starting at noon - and these will be followed this evening with a traditional Easter fish and chip dinner at the Maidenwell Sportsgrounds (see entry below). Spectators and supporters are very welcome, too, and more information is available on the Run Maidenwell website
