Get ready to run in this year’s Bradford 10k race

Epilepsy Action Bradford 10k

Tesfaye Debele smashed the record last year at a time of 31 minutes and two seconds

National charity Epilepsy Action is encouraging people across the region to sprint towards their fitness goals by taking part in this year’s Epilepsy Action Bradford 10k race.

Over 1,000 runners will take to the streets of Bradford on 16 March, following a 10k route from Bradford’s Centenary Square to Frizinghall and back.

With a flatter course for runners this year, organisers anticipate a record number of runners taking part.

Katie Stocks, fundraising events officer at Epilepsy Action, said: “The Epilepsy Action Bradford 10k run continues to go from strength to strength and we hope to get a record number of runners this year.

“The race provides the perfect target for your New Year fitness goals, even if you’ve never taken part in an organised run before or if this is the year you want to beat your personal best.”

Prizes will be awarded to everyone who comes in first, second and third place, including winners of the veterans’ categories. A free technical running T-shirt will also be given to each person who completes the race.

A £50 prize is also on the cards to the first runner who can finish the race in under 30 minutes.

Epilepsy affects around one in every 100 people in the UK alone and 87 people are diagnosed with the condition every day. This year, Epilepsy Action will be looking to providing further valuable help to those who have been diagnosed.

Ms Stocks said: “In 2014 the charity will continue to provide its life-changing services, ensuring that no-one with epilepsy has to live with the condition alone.”

The closing date for entries is 13 March 2014.
