Charity Runs

One of the most common ways to get involved with a charity is to join one of the many charity runs taking place throughout the year. Here at The Prince of Wales Hospice we host a number of different charity runs, whether you are looking for a charity fun run, or a marathon we can help you to get involved.

Festive Fun Run 11th December 2016

Our Festive Fun Run is just one of the charity runs we take part in, hosted by the Hospice you can walk, jog or run around the 2.5km course in Pontefract centre.

You can either take part as Santa or let out your inner snowman, or even Grinch, to take part in this fantastic festive family event. In 2015 you could also sign your four-legged friends up for their own competition for the best dressed to win their own doggy prize!

Don't forget, if you are the individual with the most sponsorship raised by 31st January 2016, for your run in December, you could win a fantastic mountain bike, donated by HARIBO.
