Hello, I am looking to take part in next years Bradford 10K. Do you have to raise sponsorship to take part in it?

Submitted by Lesley on

Hi Leslie,

thank you for getting in touch. By taking part in the Bradford 10K, there is no obligation to raise sponsorship. The cost of participation in the race is covered by the registration fee. If you do choose to raise any sponsorship, all the money raised will go directly to supporting the 600,000 people in the UK living with epilepsy.

If you have any further questions the Events Team will be more than willing to help. You can contact them on 0113 210 8800 or events@epilepsy.org.uk

Thanks

Carl
Fundraising officer

27th September is the Great Yorkshire Run. Of all the days you could've picked!!!

Submitted by Ribbo on

We do appreciate it is the Great Yorkshire Run on the same day. Due to other fixtures in our events calendar and a local race taking place the following week, we have had to make the decision to hold the race on this date. The route will be the same fast, flat course as previous years and we do hope that runners will join us in the race next year.

Katie, Fundraising events manager, Epilepsy Action.
