Event information

This is where it all began.

The Leeds 10K was Jane Tomlinson’s vision. Having raised £1.8 million for charity while she was battling terminal cancer, in 2006 Jane knew her time left to fundraise was limited. As a result, she decided to set up the Leeds 10K to continue the fundraising vehicle for charities that she had started.

Over the last 15 years the Leeds 10K has grown to become one of the highlights of the city’s events calendar, and is a hugely popular, inclusive and supported race for participants of all abilities.

In many ways, the Leeds 10K captures the can-do, inspirational spirit of its founder.

Throughout the route, crowds come out in force. A fantastic atmosphere and friendly volunteers make the event unforgettable for all.

Whether you’re running for a PB, fundraising for a cause close to your heart, or simply aiming to get round and enjoy the day, this is the event for you.

Give your trainers a new ‘lace of life’ with JogOn

Check out our brand-new partnership with JogOn!

We are inviting you to part ways with unwanted old trainers that you may have previously thrown out. Drop-off stations will be made readily available next to the Race Office, located in the Event Village on Millennium Square.

Trainers will then be sent onto the JogOn HQ, ready to be passed on for a new lease of life and redistributed to those who need them most. Where possible, the JogOn Again scheme enables the reuse of unwanted shoes by giving them to those in need, through distribution by partners in eleven hubs around the world. Where reuse is not an option for the shoes they are shredded, and their remains are reused for other purposes.

We are committed to keeping Leeds green and we understand the importance of doing our bit for the environment. Bins will be provided across the event site and we urge people to use the facilities provided.

Let’s work together to Keep Leeds green and encourage other runners to do the same.

Pacers

Our team of pacers, sponsored by Arla Protein, have been organised on behalf of the Northern Pacing Volunteers.

The team are looking forward to supporting you on your run. Each pacer will have a flag attached to them with finish times and will run at a steady pace. If you keep up with them, you’ll be able to achieve the time on the flag.
Our pacers will be pacing at five-minute intervals between sub-40 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes.

They’re all very friendly, so feel free to have a chat with them before the event, and be sure to say thanks once you’ve crossed the finish line!
