Comic genius and accomplished marathon runner Eddie Izzard is lined-up to take part in the #RunForJo when it takes place on Sunday 25 June 2017 at Birstall’s Oakwell Hall & Country Park in memory of Jo Cox, MP.
Eddie, pictured above with Kim Leadbeater (Jo’s sister), took the opportunity to show his support for the #RunForJo during a recent visit to Batley and is encouraging as many people as possible to sign-up for the event. It is hoped that more than 1,000 walkers/runners will take part in either a 2.5k fun-run or a 6.5k cross-country challenge.
Kim, said: “Events like this were what Jo was all about - our community coming together with shared passions, whether that be music, food, sport or just a good old fashioned Yorkshire chat. I’ll be running for Jo.”
So why not join TeamGMB and get signed up for the run. Visit:
