At the Start and Finish

Please note that the start line for both events is located outside the Parkinson Steps, at the University of Leeds.

The Leeds Junior race starts at 09:45, followed by the Mini race at 09:48.

Once crossing the finish line, all mini and juniors are asked to collect their goodies including that all-important medal and a selection of goodies once they cross the finish line.

Participants will then be directed to the collection point by our team of friendly volunteers where they'll be able to meet up with their parents or guardians.

Where to meet

Once mini and juniors have collected their race number, they will need to head to the start line shortly before 09.30. Here they will be guided through a short warm-up by Leeds Active.

Warm Up

To help our participants feel ready and raring to go, Leeds Active will be delivering a warm-up on the start line at around 09:30.


There isn’t a baggage store for this event so participants are asked to leave their bags and any extra clothes with family and friends.


Smile! The Marathon Photos team will be on course throughout the event to snap your picture.

Photographs can be purchased at marathonphotoslive.com. Should you not wish for your photo to be used in this way, please e-mail info@runforall.com prior to race day.

Left Clothing

Please note that any clothing left anywhere on the start line will be donated to charity.
