Time is running out to sign up for the Epilepsy Action Bradford 10k road race on Sunday 16 March. Entries for the event, which raises money for Yeadon-based national charity Epilepsy Action, close on Thursday 13 March.

The runners will follow a 10k route, from Centenary Square to Frizinghall and back. The 2014 race sees a slight change in the route from previous years, resulting in a faster, flatter course.
