With less than five weeks to go, organisers of the Ilkley Half-Marathon have put a call out for more volunteers to help them stage the event.
Ilkley and District Round Table will stage the fourth Ilkley Half on Sunday 16th July, a spokesperson said: “This year is shaping up to be another cracking event but it’s only possible to put on with a large team of volunteers. We are still short of the numbers we require especially to cover the Addingham - Beamsley area of the course.
"If you’re not running this year but would still like to be involved then please consider signing up as a volunteer.”
The event is entirely volunteer led and has been rated ‘outstanding’ and given 100% from UK Athletics in each year for safety and quality. The group also organises an event village with a broad range of food and drink vendors, children’s activities and entertainment. The 2023 event is expected to attract over 2,500 runners and 5,000 spectators.
