THE deadline for this year's Acorns Triple Run is fast approaching.

So far more than 1,000 people have signed up for the event in aid of the children's hospice, which takes place on Sunday, June 22 at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern.

The run consists of a 1km fun run, a 5km woodland trail and the Malvern Half Marathon and the deadline for entries is Wednesday, June 18.

Shujea Khatun, Acorns major events officer, said: “We’re really pleased with the number of people who have signed up, but we’re holding a final push to sign up more participants.

“Acorns Children's Hospice doesn’t charge families for making use of its services, regardless of the ever increasing costs involved. We rely heavily on public fund-raising and voluntary donations from events such as this provide us with the majority of the funding we need to operate.”
