THE countdown for this year’s Wakefield Hospice 10k event is on.

And teams of runners can work together to win top prizes.

Groups of four to 10 people can run as a team to get the quickest overall time.

Individual amateur athletes will also take to the streets between Clarence Park and Horbury on Sunday, April 15.

A 1km fun run around the park will be on offer for youngsters as the charity hopes to beat last year’s total of £32,000.

The event will see the first official outing for the hospice’s new mascot, which children under the age of 12 can name.
