These photos rewind to the day thousands of runners put their best foot forward for the first time at the Leeds 10K.

Around 8,000 took part in the charity road race on that Sunday in June 2007 raising more than £500,000 for charities and good causes. The event was part of the lasting legacy of the late inspirational Jane Tomlinson CBE, who founded the charity road race shortly before her untimely death. Despite having to retire from competitions at the end of 2006, Jane channelled her remaining energies into creating the Leeds 10k Run For All.
