After you fly across the finish line, don’t forget to collect your goodies including that all important medal. Running is thirsty work, so grab a free bottle of water too – provided by the Asda Foundation.
You will be directed to the collection point by our team of friendly volunteers where you’ll be able to meet back up with your parents and guardians. This is where you can show everyone your brand new, shiny medal!
Please remember to pace yourself but, most importantly, enjoy your run! There will be a team of photographers on course who will want to see some of your cheesiest smiles. You’ll get your personal photos emailed to you to purchase from marathonphotos.com the following week.
Should you not wish for your photo to be used in this way, please e-mail email@example.com prior to race day.
In 2022 the Leeds fun run will be supporting the Jane Tomlinson Appeal
The Appeal is the legacy of the late inspirational Jane Tomlinson CBE who made headlines worldwide by completing a series of seemingly impossible challenges – after being told she had incurable cancer and just months to live.
Jane, a mum-of-three, defied her diagnosis to take part in countless marathons and famously rode across Europe and the USA to raise funds for charity.
The Appeal aims to carry on Jane’s extraordinary achievements by continuing to support children to be happier and healthier and improve the lives of people living with cancer. This is done through 4 key projects.
