ORGANISERS of an ultra-marathon are searching for volunteers to help with the event.

The Stour Valley Path 100km run takes place on September 14 and finishes in Cattawade, a short walk from Manningtree, after beginning in Newmarket.

Those willing to give up eight hours of their time will receive an event t-shirt, free entry into the 2014 event and a small allowance for food and drink.

There are also still spaces left for those who wish to take on the 62 mile challenge and believe they can complete it in less than 13.5 hours.
