The Sheffield 10K Corporate Challenge forms part of the legacy of the late Jane Tomlinson who raised £1.85m for charity by tackling a series of gruelling endurance challenges - despite battling cancer. With the funds raised, Jane formed the not-for-profit organisation, Run For All, that organise charity road runs across the UK as part of the Asda Foundation Series.
Run For All’s final team challenge of the 2019 season is the Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay on Sunday 20th October.
