RunForJo 2019 at Oakwell Hall and Country Park

As a continuing legacy of the work by Jo Cox MP and to celebrate Jo’s belief that ‘far more unites us than divides us’ we are holding 2 runs around Oakwell Hall and Country Park. This year, the first run will start at 9:30am and is a 6.5km cross country challenge and the second run starts at 11:00am is a 2.5km family fun run. There will be music and surprises on the route and a party at the finish line. With food stalls, a bar, a Mascots' Race and entertainment this really is a day out for the whole family. We are delighted to be supported again by our friends at racebest, so come and join us to run, have fun and celebrate all we have in common! All proceeds go to the Jo Cox Foundation to support local projects.
