The Yorkshire Evening Post is always at the front of the pack when it comes to breaking the biggest stories in Leeds.
So who better to lend some profile-boosting support to next year’s Leeds Half Marathon?
The YEP was today announced as the official media partner of the annual fundraising run, which takes place on Sunday, May 12.
Next year will be the second time the half marathon has been organised by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All group.
Hospices and charities that will benefit from the race include St Gemma’s Hospice and Martin House Children’s Hospice as well as the Jane Tomlinson Appeal itself.
And the team at Run For All couldn’t be happier that their efforts on behalf of those good causes are being aided by the YEP.
Event director Sara Birkinshaw said: “We’re delighted to have the backing and support of Leeds’s biggest newspaper.
“We really value the support of all our partners in the event.
“We’re really excited to be once again hosting the half marathon and being able to support so many different hospices is just incredible.
“It’s a challenging but rewarding course and is suitable for anyone aged over 17, no matter what their running abilities are.
“So with eight months to go, there’s plenty of time to dust off those trainers and find your inner athlete!”
Several hundred people have already registered for the race, which was organised by the city council until Run For All came on board.
It will start and finish in Leeds city centre and all participants will receive a T-shirt, medal and on-course photographs.
The athletic action will not be confined to the individual half marathon, however.
Its sister events, also taking place in Leeds on May 12, are the Half Marathon Corporate Relay and the Arena Group Junior and Mini Fun Run.
Rothwell mum Jane Tomlinson raised huge sums for charity by tackling a string of endurance challenges before her death from cancer in 2007.
