Road closures in place for the Darlington 10K
The popular 10K race around Darlington finally returns this weekend.
More than two thousand runners will set off to complete two laps of the town centre course in what has become a popular event for runners of all levels aged 15 and over.
Also taking place are the Family Fun Run and the Junior 3K event.
The 10k was cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic but appropriate Covid safety measures are in place for this year's event.
