Nottingham's landmarks will be seen at sunrise when the brand new event comes to the city this Summer.
Hundreds of participants in the first-ever Smooth Sunrise City 5k will pound the deserted streets during a 5k run or walk that takes place at 5.30am - usually associated with slumber - on Friday, June 30.
The main attraction is the fact that runners and walkers have a chance to fit this event into their busy lives. Giving everyone a chance to run before work, which is proven to boost productivity.
Participants will turn the city purple as they dress in the colour to take part in the event, which organisers describe as a "celebration of family, health and exercise", which is open to people of all running abilities.
