THERE is less than a week until entries close for the 2013 Dewsbury 10K Road Race, which takes place on Sunday February 3.

Organisers Dewsbury Road Runners will accept entries up to 6pm next Wednesday (January 23) and around 1,000 runners are expected to compete in the event, sponsored by Al-Murad Tiles and Disken and Co solicitors,

Race director Bernard Disken said: “I will be watching the weather forecast closely and hope there is no repeat of last year, when we had to postpone on the eve of the race.”

The race starts at 9am on Dewsbury Ring Road and travels along Bradford Road through Batley to Birstall Smithies and back.

Runners can enter online at or pick up a form from Disken and Co Solicitors, 20 Bond Street, Dewsbury WF13 1AT.
