I have received the information below from the Race Organiser in respect of this year’s Eccup 10 Mile Race:
“Dear Sir Or Madam
I am writing to you in your role as councillor of Adel and Wharfedale.
I am the race director for the Hollybank Eccup 10 2016, a 10 mile running race that has been held for 23 years – http://www.abbeyrunners.co.uk/eccup-10/
The race is organised by Abbey Runners, and this year is in support of two local charities – the Hollybank Trust http://www.hollybanktrust.com/ and Sunshine and Smiles http://www.sunshineandsmiles.org.uk/
The event will take place on Sunday 3rd July 2016. We have applied for the required race licence and road closures with the council, and will also in the upcoming weeks be informing residents by letter who may be impacted for a short period by road closures on the day. This is in line with the communication we have done in previous years, and we have always had great support from the local community.
I wanted to make you aware of this event occurring in your local area as we are keen to ensure everyone is up to date with the details of our event in advance. I attach a copy of the route for information. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.”
