I would like to thank all of the organisers, marshalls and stewards for this magnificent event. The weather was perfect and the run was a dream. Great day, great event. I am already looking forward to March.
Thanks again

This event is perfect for all abilities. Im a novice, and managed to complete this course in 1 hour 14mins. I was worried, as 10k seems a long way and my treadmill was telling me it was gonna take more like two hours for me to complete the distance. Thankfully, the course is laid out in such a way that it caters for everyone, whether you want to achieve a personal best, just get the distance under your belt, or simply want to raise money as a fun run.

The marshalls were fantastic, and so supportive and encouraging. They really helped to make the experience something to remember. The atmosphere was really welcoming, and we even had a little warm up aerobics to get us ready for action.

I am also looking forward to completing this again in 2016!!

I highly rate this race for everyone regardless of ability.

Is it just for runners or can you and do some people walk it?

Submitted by Anneliese Gray on

Hi Anneliese, the Bradford 10k is intended as a run rather than a walking event. However if you choose to walk parts of it, this is possible however please bear in mind that you will be required to complete the run by 10.45am as this is when the roads re-open to transport. After this time we ask that you move to the pavement.

Best wishes, the Fundraising Events Team

Is the course open to dogs? I would like to bring along my running partner.


Submitted by Jess on

Hi Jess,
due to the number of participants on the course and for health and safety reasons, it is not possible to run with your dog at the event. Best wishes, the fundraising team

For those who use Strava for recording and analysing their runs I've created a route of the Bradford 10k in Strava which you can look at at learn the route and see the hills etc...

I planning to run on sunday but i am currently a very slow runner and expect it to talk me 1hour and 30min, will i still be able to run the course

Submitted by sarah Whiteman on

Hi Sarah, the roads will remain closed until 10.45am so it is fine to run the course in that time. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.

Best wishes, the fundraising events team

Bit feedback for planners of this event. It would be useful to have a map of route showing where the road closures are so for those of us needing to move around the route by vehicle can plan the best way of doing so. If the info is available on the site,its not obviously jumping out at me.

Submitted by Steve on

Steve, that's a very good idea about the road closures map.  We'll work on that for the 2017 race.

A really enjoyable run this morning. I would also like to thank all the organisers,marshalls and stewards for their great support and enthusiasm as we went past. Lovely to hear a variety of music from a choir, brass band and drumming band. You feel really safe with all the medical staff around too.
Yes I'll be ready for March 2017

Thanks to all involved.

Hi there. Where would be best to park on the day? Never done this one before.

Submitted by craig briggs on

Hi Craig,

The map above with has all the suitable parking sports for the Bradford 10K.

Unfortuantely, it is hard to determine which one might be best on the day.

I am running in the race and would like to drive, but am struggling to get a view of the road closures.

Is this information available ?

I don't seem to have got my race pack can you let me know what to do?
Thanks Rob

Lovely day even though a bit rainy. Have you thought about engaging with Bradford upper schools and getting more of the city's young people engaging with the race? You could offer some free entries and ask the young people to fundraise for Epilepsy Action. Just an idea.

Submitted by Sarah on

Hi Sarah, thank you for getting in touch. We’re pleased to hear that you enjoyed the event. Thank you for your suggestion regarding engaging schools in Bradford. We’ll certainly add it in to our discussions when planning for 2018. If you do have any other feedback you can contact the events team directly on events@epilepsy.org.uk.

Hi Szilvia, thank you for your great comments about the event. We’re delighted you enjoyed it. Well done!

I completed the Bradford 10k today. However, I was wondering whether you could explain why the event was advertised with a lower case 'b' for 'Bradford'.

Submitted by K.K.Patel on

Thank you for getting in touch. I hope you enjoyed taking part yesterday. The lower case ‘b’ in the event name is purely a stylistic decision based on the charity’s branding. We only use this style in logos and main headings. If you have any other queries about the event you can contact the events team directly on events@epilepsy.org.uk
