Over 1,000 runners take part in biggest-yet Keighley 10k race
10:28am Monday 11th March 2013 in News
More than 1,000 runners braved flurries of snow and freezing temperatures to take part in the biggest Keighley 10k race yet.
Organisers had expected high numbers for yesterday morning’s event, but the wintry weather forecast raised doubts over how many of those who signed up would appear on the day.
But all fears were unfounded, when enough runners arrived in Victoria Park to make it the biggest run since it started four years ago.
Held every Mother’s Day, the race is organised by the Sue Ryder charity in aid of its Manorlands hospice in Oxenhope, which offers end of life care for people throughout the district.
It attracts both serious runners and people who just want to raise money for the charity.
The event is expected to coin in over £40,000 once all sponsorship money has been collected.
