Organisers for the charity Leeds Fundraising Action have announced that the 22nd event will take place on Sunday September 26 in the grounds of the country park.

Kathryn Leverett, Fundraising Manager for Cancer Research UK in Yorkshire, said: “Covid-19 has slowed research down and the impact over the last year has been enormous but with your help we can still beat cancer.

“One in two people now survive their cancer for 10 years or more in the UK, but there is still so much more to be done.

“Our ambition at Cancer Research UK is to accelerate progress in cancer research and see three in four people survive the next 20 years but we need huge support to make this happen.

“The support we receive from the local community is hugely important to us and the commitment from all the volunteers that support this great event over the last 22 years is so inspiring and appreciated.

“All vital funds raised from the Bramham Park Fun Run go towards Cancer Research UK’s work here in Yorkshire and we are delighted to hold the event again this year.”

Runners of all abilities and ages are being urged to sign up to this established fun run, which was last year postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Sign up and help raise vital funds for life-saving cancer research carried out by Cancer Research UK in the region,” added a spokesman for the volunteer group.

“We hope this year will be even bigger and better than ever.”

Two routes are offered: 5k and 10k circuits, designed for fun runners/walkers and is open to adults and unaccompanied children from the age of 12 years.

Each participant will receive a medal and a fundraising pack.

The event is marshalled and supported by volunteers from Tadcaster Harriers.
