WIN: A free entry for Italian running event, Run 5.30 Leicester

After making an international debut in the UK last year, the unique running phenomenon Run 5.30 has chosen Leicester as the second UK city to host the Italian born event.

At 5.30am on Friday 8th July, whilst most of the city is sleeping, early birds from across Leicestershire will be making the most of their mornings.

United once more in a sea of blue t-shirts they will be lacing up their trainers ready to watch the sun rise as they take on a 5.3k run. Starting and ending in Victoria Park, the route will take participants past the most iconic parts of the city as they make their way down New Walk, around the city centre and back again.

Participants will receive a free t-shirt, medal and fresh fruit breakfast on the morning of the event; setting them up perfectly for the rest of the day!

Run 5.30 are giving five lucky readers the chance to win a place on the event and help Leicester make history once more as the city embarks on their first ever Run 5.30 event.
