Run, Ride, Run For A Hot Cross Bun
Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice is set to benefit from a brand new duathlon which is to be held in Keighley on 1 April, Easter Sunday.
The event comprises of two 5km runs separated by a 20km bike ride. Hence participants are being encouraged to run, ride run for their Hot cross bun which they will receive along with a medal at the finish line.
The event was the brainchild of Simon Turner, Manager of the Keighley Leisure Centre which is hosting the event. Simon said:
“There is nothing quite like this around these parts and we hope it will be well supported and something that can become an annual event raising funds for a great cause.”
The run section will take participants from Victoria Park into the newly refurbished Cliffe Castle Park and back before they enter the transition zone. There they collect their bike and head up the Worth Valley tackling the cobbles of Haworth Main Street and the upper stretch of Penistone Hill, before passing the entrance of Manorlands Hospice and returning to Victoria Hall.
The event which is supported by Bradford Council and British Triathlon will be chip timed and the transition zone will be located in the enclosed MUGA (multi use games area) for enhanced security.
Sue Ryder Community Fundraising Manager Andrew Wood is looking forward to the event and said:
“We know a large number of our supporters like running and cycling so we’re hoping there’s a good proportion who like both and there is always the chance to team up and do a relay with one member doing the runs and one the rides.”
