The one that started it all. The Asda Foundation Leeds 10K is the original legacy run of the late Jane Tomlinson, who took on a series of endurance challenges to raise nearly £2m for charity despite battling terminal cancer.
Jane died in 2007 soon after launching the 10K and now it is a highlight on the city’s running calendar – a hugely popular and inclusive event for runners of all abilities that captures the can-do, inspirational spirit displayed by its founder.
Large crowds lining the route, a fantastic atmosphere and friendly volunteers all contribute to the success of this fabulous flat run that takes in many historic city centre landmarks.
Whether you’re an experienced runner looking for a PB, fundraising for a cause close to your heart or a novice simply aiming to get round, this is the event for you.
