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

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.

Thanks,

Hi

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 ?

Thanks,

Adam.

Hi
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.

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

Hi. Just checking, does the race start at 9am? What time is best to arrive?

Submitted by Kate Reed on

If you have any other questions, please contact the events team at events@epilepsy.org.uk or call 0113 210 8800.

Submitted by Julia on

We are monitoring the forecasts closely at the moment. Based on the current forecasts we are planning for the event to go ahead as planned.
