Thanks to everyone who took part in the 10K Road Race on Sunday 6th April.
 
We had our largest field of runners in recent years with 1550 entering and 1350 taking part on the day.  Thank you to each and every one of you who helped us RUN for FUNds.  
 
We must also thank our sponsors Harratts without their generous sponsorship this event would not happen. This event would also not happen without the support of our huge team of Hospice Volunteers who gave up their Sunday morning to help us RUN for FUNds. A special mention must also go to Key Securities our professional marshalling team who provide their staff free of charge so that we can close the road. We would also like to thank A1 for the Road Traffic Management and Wakefield Highways for their ongoing support.
