ECCUP 10 MILE RACE – SUNDAY 1ST JULY – INFORMATION AND DETAILS OF ROUTE

I have received the message below from the Race Organiser:

I am the race director for the Hollybank Eccup 10 2018, a 10 mile running race that has been held over 20 years – http://www.abbeyrunners.co.uk/eccup-10/

The race is organised by Abbey Runners, and this year is again in support of a local charity – the Hollybank Trust http://www.hollybanktrust.com/ 

The event will take place on Sunday 1st July 2018.  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.

The race will start and finish at Adel St. John the Baptist Primary School on Long Causeway. It will follow the following route:
