On Sunday April 14 they will be joined at the park by more larger-than-life characters and hundreds of spectators as part of the hospice’s 10k road race and fun run

Event organiser Danielle Cain said: “The mascots warm up was hilarious to watch and really turned some heads in Clarence Park. I can’t wait to see the real race.”

The 10k to Horbury and back will start at 9am followed, by the mascot race and fun run at 10am.
