Hi with snow being forecast this weekend the race still definitely go ahead? Where should I check for updates?

Submitted by Marc on

Will the race be cancelled if the weather is inclement?

Submitted by Scott Wellings on

Hi, the weather forecast looks grim, with snow forecast from Friday morning till Sunday morning. Are you planning a "pitch inspection" at any particular time, in case the conditions could prevent the race taking place?

Submitted by Malcolm on

There is a heavy snow forecast for Friday and Saturday, will this affect the race?

Submitted by Stephen Gorman on

Well done for making an early call on the postponement. I look forward to the race taking place next month.

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
