Route

The Asda Foundation Leeds 10K course has something to offer, regardless of age or ability.

Seasoned runners can take advantage of the super-flat and fast route to compete for their personal best, whilst new runners can embrace the incredible atmosphere to achieve their own goal, whether that's just getting round, or supporting a good cause. 

With a truly electric city centre start and finish, and great support around the route, there are few events to rival the Leeds 10K.
