THE first big running event of 2017 takes place in Plymouth this weekend with the hosting of the annual January Jaunt 10k race.

The event, organised by the Plymouth Round Table, will be held on Sunday, starting a 9am at the Plymouth Devils’ speedway track at Marsh Mills.

The race takes runners into the Saltram estate before returning to St Boniface Arena.

Last year’s event proved incredibly popular and sold out before the day, with 492 of the 500 entered runners finishing the race.

Sam Prictor and Rebecca Ezra claimed the men’s and women’s 2016 titles.
