Runners face a multi-terrain course across Castlemorton Common and the surrounding area.
There are trophies and prizes for race and age category winners plus a memento for competitors.
Joggers’ sponsors Vasai Restaurant will supply free food for all runners and a licensed bar is being put on by the Plume of Feathers.
Entry fees are £8 for affiliated runners and £10 for unaffiliated. On the night, there will be an additional charge of £2.
A donation will be made from any race profit to the Community First Responders charity.
