Epilepsy Action Bradford 10KSunday 19 March will mark a monumental date in the history of the Epilepsy Action Bradford 10K as it celebrates its 10th year in existence. The race, which is still accepting registrations, is believed to be one of the quickest in Yorkshire, with thousands of runners posting PBs during the last decade. 

Epilepsy Action's very own 10k, the race has raised in excess of £310,000 to help improve the lives of everyone affected by epilepsy. The event has been designed to take runners through the heart of Bradford and is highly rated for its organisation and PB potential, with 93% of runners saying they would do it again.
