School children from across Roundhay are set to take part in the 11th annual Run For Fun on Saturday, June 25.

The Roundhay Primary Schools’ Run for Fun, whose lead sponsor is Leeds-based Preston Baker estate agents, was established by volunteers to help children to participate in sporting activities alongside children from several schools in the local area.

The event will be run by 1,200 primary school children and their family members. Parents from ten primary schools across Roundhay organise the activities.

This year the event has its own hashtag, #RoundhayFunRun, and organisers are encouraging people to share any images and video from the event on social media.
