Kirkwood Hospice 10K Trail Race 2013

01st September 2013
Sunday saw the second running of the Kirkwood Hospice 10K Trail Race.

The event aims to raise money for the Hospice which provides specialist care, free of charge, to adults in Kirklees with advanced, progressive illnesses at any time from diagnosis to the end of life, respecting their individual needs and wishes.

Care and support is also provided for their family members, friends and carers, both during the illness and after death.

The pre-race warm up was led by Fit4Force

Pinky Lynx of race sponsor The Pink Link was on hand throughout the day

The 200+ runners get under way

The race saw entrants of all ages taking part

Much of the course was along the canal footpath (nice and flat)

Local running celebrity Sean Doyle (no.104) returned to racing less than 4 months after suffering a heart attack.

Race winners Andy WHitworth (Meltham AC) and Nicola Brown (Holmfirth Harriers)
