The Keighley BigK is a challenging 10K or 5K run at the start of the running season that follows a circular route through the paths, parks and roads of Keighley.

This event is held in aid of Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope. As the event is held on Mothers’ Day, many people take part in memory of their mum and others do it with their mum or to make her proud.

In addition to water at the water stations, participants will receive a Keighley BigK technical T-shirt and all mothers who cross the finish line will receive a red carnation as a gift on Mothers’ Day.
