New for 2021
The Arena Group Leeds Fun Run is a great way to get active this year!
Entries are FREE for 2 to 14 years old's making this a fantastic fun day out for all the family.
Taking place on the same day as the Leeds Half Marathon the route offers the chance to experience a City Centre start/finish line surrounded by an electric atmosphere.
Run For All events aim to be entirely inclusive, regardless of ability. So, if your child has mobility or other issues or has any other special considerations, please get in touch so we can help you and them have the best experience.
All finishers will be rewarded with goodies such as water, food and that all-important medal to show off to friends!

Please bring safety pins with you as your race number will need to be attached to your t-shirt.
Woodhouse Lane Car Park is the closest Leeds City Council car park to the start of the Leeds Fun Run and is open 24 hours.
All runners are required to assemble on Millennium Square for a warm up before the start of their race.
We're sure lots of fans are coming to support you! Please get them to head to the start/finish line so they can see you zoom past them and collect your finishers medal.
There isn’t a baggage store for Fun Run run so please leave your bag and extra clothes with your family and friends who will be cheering you on.
To help you feel ready and raring to go, our friends from Active Leeds will be offering a fun warm-up!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org prior to race day.
