Runners are hoping to get a ‘slice’ the action at this year’s Spires and Steeples Challenge - but who will come out on ‘topping’?

Excuse the cheesy puns - but the event has just been boosted by Sleaford’s The Little Italy Pizza Co - announced as one of the sponsors for 2015.

Donna Sutton, events officer for the challenge said: “We are delighted to have the 
Little Italy Pizza Co on board. The challenge, after all, is a community event and we want to support as many local businesses as possible.”

The event already receives support from the Lincolnshire Co-operative in the form of water at each checkpoint, energy bars and volunteering opportunities for their employees.

“We are always looking for new sponsors,” adds Donna, “We want the challenge to bring positive impacts to the community and if you think you can get involved please get in touch.”

The Spires and Steeples Challenge takes place on October 18 and is a charity 26-mile or 13-mile walk or run following a heritage trail between Lincoln or Metheringham, finishing in Sleaford.

Money is raised for WheelPower which provides sports wheelchairs, training and support to disabled people.

Entries cost £18 per person for the 26-mile challenge and £15 per person for the 13-mile challenge. Places are limited to 1,000.
