29 October 2017
Come and celebrate Bradford’s Annual Festival of Running with Bradford City Runs on Sunday 29 October. Our unique event has a choice of three distances: 5K, 10K and Half Marathon along with a totally separate kids’ race. Choose your distance and sign up now at www.bradfordcityruns.co.uk as there are no entries on the day.
All races are chip timed and held on closed, traffic-free roads in and around City Park and the city centre. Adult race finishers will receive a medal and a T-shirt and children will receive a medal.
Even if you’re not running it’s a family-friendly event with stalls and stands and entertainment for spectators.
The route takes in parts of Little Germany and the Broadway Shopping Centre, as well as the University of Bradford, Bradford College, City Hall and City Park.
Bradford City Runs will once again raise money for the Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit, based at the University of Bradford. The unit was set up after the tragic Bradford City fire disaster in 1985 and continues to explore ground-breaking treatment techniques for burns sufferers. The 2016 Bradford City Runs event raised £7,000 for the unit and we are hoping to top that in 2017!
