THE Salvation Army wants Yorkshire fitness enthusiasts to run in this year's British 10-kilometre race and raise money to support its social service work in the county.
The Yorkshire division runs five homeless hostels, which provide accommodation, resettlement, rehabilitation and detox programmes.
The money raised by people taking part in the London race will help to pay for these centres, as well as the 58 corps (church and community centres) which provide community support, youth programmes, friendship and counselling.
The race takes place through central London on Sunday, July 3.
About 20,000 people are expected to run.
The Salvation Army is one of the official charities for this year's race, which is open to amateur and professional runners.
"The Salvation Army is very pleased to be one of the official charities for this year's race for the first time," said Lt-Col John Hassard, of the organisation's Yorkshire division.
"We really hope lots of people take part to raise money for the Salvation Army and make it a truly successful event."
