Run the 10k race wearing a tutu

Staff from Overgate Hospice are preparing to run the first ever Overgate 10k run – dressed as ballerinas.

Ten nurses have already registered to take part wearing tutus to raise funds for the Elland hospice.

It will start and finish at Copley Cricket Club on Sunday April 10.

Organiser Lauren Ingram said she hoped it would appeal to everyone from professional runners to first-timers.

She said: “We have already had massive interest and have 10 nurses willing to take part dressed as ballerinas. We hope it will be a huge success, like other charity 10ks.”

Registration is £12 and includes a running vest and medal. For more information contact 01422 387121 or email lauren.
