Lovely event, really good for Wakefield. Lots of clubs attend as well as individuals. An event really open to all abilities. Closed roads with lots of marshals, very friendly and encouraging volunteers.

I love that its big enough to feel like a top end race withouth being over crowded or impersonal. Organised by local hospice (which I didnt know before) with profit going there. Listen to feedback and always try to give runners best experience.

Absolutely loved this 10k, fantastic atmosphere, lovely people and really well organised. I run with Sarah Powala and Jamie Strachen supporting Wakefield Hospice and Sarah's #10KADIM 10k a Day in May challenge. Maybe I'm a little biased as Wakefield is now my official 10K PB course !
