Bunnies set to hop to it.

EIGHTY "running bunnies" from Huddersfield's weekly park run will take on the country's most popular half marathon in September.

They will aim to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

The Greenhead Park running enthusiasts, known as 'Team Bunny', are hoping to raise pounds 10,000 for the charity by completing the Great North Run, a 13.1 mile course from Newcastle to South Shields.

Led by park run volunteer Kerry Noble and Greenhead Park's activity officer Chris Smith, the group were inspired to take part after becoming involved in Yorkshire Cancer Research's Bounce for Yorkshire Huddersfield event - an attempt to break the world record for the most people bouncing on space hoppers. That is due to take place in the park on Sunday, August 22.

Kerry said: "We are so excited about all the bunnies taking part in the Great North Run for this amazing charity. The uptake of places was phenomenal and we are sure that we are going to smash our pounds 10k target."
