Race Information

The Arena Group Leeds Mini and Junior Runs provide a great running experience that will live long in the memory.

A wonderful introduction to mass participation events, youngsters will be swept along in these colourful events by enthusiastic spectators and a superb atmosphere. The 1.5km mini run is for children aged 3 to 8. The junior run, for youngsters aged between 9 and 14, covers a distance of 2.5km. Both runs are suitable for all abilities.

All those taking part are encouraged to raise a small amount of money for the event's partner charity, which in 2017 is Winston's Wish.  Winston’s Wish supports children, young people and their families after the death of their parent or sibling. Winston’s Wish provides professional therapeutic support, offering practical advice to tackle the difficult feelings that come with grief and to keep special memories of the person who has died.

Every child who crosses the finish line will receive a goody bag and finisher’s medal to show the world they did it!
