Fundraisers are gearing up for a six-lap fun run around Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

They will do so to collect cash for the Arsenal Foundation on Saturday, April 5.

Be a Gunner, Be a Runner returns after its launch last year and involves a 3.2-mile course for adults and a shorter one or two-lap race for children aged up to 14.

Since it launched in May 2012, the Arsenal Foundation has raised more than £1million, supporting projects that are benefiting in excess of 100,000 people.

This year’s event will have a special heroes theme, with runners encouraged to wear fancy dress on the day. There are prizes on offer for the best dressed.

Entry to the event costs £15 for adults (aged 15 and over) and £5 for juniors (aged 14 and under).

Due to the limited number of spaces available, all adult runners are encouraged to raise a minimum of £150 in sponsorship.
