New sponsor โ€“ Outside the Box

  • by

Organisers of the Jack Bloor Races are delighted to announce that Outside the Box is to sponsor our 2015 Junior Races.

Outside the Boxย is Ilkleyโ€™s incredibly popular and successful community cafรฉ.

Delicious homemade food and drinks can be enjoyed in the cafรฉโ€™s busy and friendly atmosphere or are available to takeaway. Outside the Box is more than just a cafรฉ. Most importantly, Outside the Box seeks to provide positive experiences for adults with learning disabilities through individual and structured programmes of training, work, activity and socialising. The cafรฉ also hosts the activities and meetings of several community groups.

Outside the Box is on Bridge Lane at the junction with the A65, Church Street. It lies opposite the Box Tree Restaurant and is close to the Riverside Gardens park.

We also appreciate continued support from two other local businesses.

The Ilkley Brewery Company is sponsoring the Senior Race by providing prizes for the top runners and teams together with liquid mementos for the many regular marshals and helpers who ensure the event runs safely and smoothly. Explore more at
