WHILE the Olympics heads towards its closing ceremony, athletics will continue locally with a novel event in South Yorkshire.

The 10k Cannon Hall Run, from Barnsley Town Hall to Cannon Hall Park, takes place on Sunday August 12.

Dan Jarvis, MP for Barnsley Central, says: “At a time when people will be inspired by the Olympic, I think this is a wonderful event to get the community to come together, not only to get fit but also to raise money for a fantastic charity, Barnsley Hospice.”

Organisers say the run is an accessible yet challenging route linking winding town centre streets to the open, hilly countryside.
