Race for Life Leeds: 15 inspiring pictures as Temple Newsam Park hosts huge Cancer Research UK fundraiser

It was a bumper weekend for Race for Life as the first event of its Yorkshire 2022 season took place in Leeds.

More than 3,500 women, men and children got involved over the two days, raising an incredible £75,000 as they tackled a mud-splattered Pretty Muddy course on Saturday or Race for Life’s 3k, 5k or 10k routes on Sunday.

Nicki Embleton, of Cancer Research UK, said: "It was fantastic to be back with Race for Life this year. We saw lots of old friends returning to take part, as well as lots of first timers, who all had a brilliant time.

"The atmosphere was amazing, so many people playing their part in beating cancer. We want to give everyone a huge thank you to all those who took part or volunteered this weekend, they are really making a difference."

"And don’t worry if you missed out, there is still time to enter other Race for Life events, including Pretty Muddy in Bradford, Wakefield and Huddersfield or in the rest of Yorkshire."
