Two happy finishers at Leeds 10K



Thousands of runners will line up in Leeds on Sunday 8 July for a 10K that can lay claim to be that extra bit special. 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 11 years later 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 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. You’re guaranteed great support and when you cross the finish line outside the Town Hall you will be handed a great goody bag with a tech T-shirt and super medal. Wear them with pride.
