BRANDS Hatch will be bombarded with bananas this weekend for a special charity event.

Leukaemia Research's Banana Army will unleash 150 runners at the famous Kent racing circuit, near West Kingsdown, for its annual half marathon spectacular on Saturday.

The event, organised by Running Fitness and Saucony with Leukaemia Research, features a traditional 13-mile race, a 10k run and an additional one-mile Bananaman Chase in aid of Leukaemia Research.

The banana bonanza will see entrants running to overtake pacesetters, all dressed in banana suits.

Celebrities set to attend the charity event include television actors from Coronation Street and Holby City.

Kate White, Director of Fundraising of Leukaemia Research, said: "We're proud to be the official charity for the Brands Hatch Half Marathon."

"Our Banana Army running team are revving up for a great race, which will help us raise much-needed money to beat blood cancers."
