Bramham Park Fun Run 2013
Preparations are well advanced for the 15th annual Bramham Park Fun Run in aid of cancer research based at St James hospital, Leeds.
The event offers a choice of 5Km and 10km circuits covering a variety of terrains using tarmac roads, paths and farm tracks through the park.
The organiser, Ann Newton, says: "The event is increasing in popularity every year, last year 480 people took part and raised over GBP7,500 for the charity. The event is open to all, the 10Km offers a challenge for serious runners, the 5Km is particularly suited to occasional runners and families who want to walk. Anyone who wishes to remember a relative or friend, who has been affected by cancer, can make a statement in support by wearing something pink."
We are delighted to say that again this year Beadnall Copley estate agents are sponsoring the event and covering all the set up costs, which means that all the money raised by participants will go directly to Cancer Research UK.
Again this year we will be supporting Prof Alan Melcher's research at St James hospital, Leeds into how viruses such as herpes can be used in the treatment of cancers. Click here for a report on Alan Melcher's research
Both routes use paths entirely within the park and offer beautiful surroundings and views. Everyone who participates really enjoys it.
Andrew Beadnall of estate agents Beadnall Copley: "We are again more than delighted to sponsor this well-supported event in aid of such a deserving cause. As cancer affects 1 in 3 of us, we urge people to get involved - you don't have to be a top runner, just getting round the 5km or 10km circuit is an achievement and helps raise more money to fight this terrible disease."
