ON your marks, get set, go!

There are just days to go until hundreds of Teesside runners will be pulling on their trainers to take part in the Tees Pride Middlesbrough 10k Road Race.

And Tees Pride campaign sponsors will be among those hoping to cross the finishing line in record time.

Staff from Darlington Council's economic regeneration and tourism section are just some of those taking part in Sunday's event.

Helen Salmon, marketing assistant, Caroline Taukulis, principal economic regeneration officer and Skills for Success project officer Lynne Groves have all been training hard over recent weeks for the race - which covers 6.2 miles around Middlesbrough.

For Helen it will be her first ever race.

"I started out doing the Race for Life and then began to run more and more. It's a great way to keep fit."

Employees from law firm Dickinson Dees are also gearing up for the event.

The Tees Pride sponsor, which has an office at Teesdale, Thornaby, has a team of more than 20 taking part.

The team will be raising money for the Tees Valley Independent Visitors Scheme which works with young people in care in the Tees Valley, matching them with independent visitors.

The idea for Dickinson Dees to take part came from Joanne Lavery, a solicitor in the company's corporate department.

"We're all looking forward to taking part. We've got 45 staff at Stockton, so to get a team of more than 20 together is a good effort - and we haven't even had to twist anybody's arm."

Staff from AK Engineering Services, which is based in Stockton, are also planning to run.

Formal approval for the 10k was given by the council in April.

Since then masses of hard work has gone into pulling everything together for the big day.

Sunday's event will also be a curtain-raiser for the first ever Middlesbrough Half Marathon, to be staged in October 2006. …
