Run for Jo


The Run for Jo is one of the key events over The Great Get Together weekend in Batley & Spen. It takes place at Oakwell Hall and Country Park in Birstall.


Runners can sign up to take part in a 2.5km fun run or a 6.5km cross-country challenge. The fun continues throughout the day with a family fun day with food, music and entertainment.
