This year’s Leeds 10k is expected to attract thousands of runners while generating a huge cash boost for a host of good causes.
It marks 15 years of the Leeds 10k. Started by Jane Tomlinson in 2007, the Leeds 10K was her lasting legacy event.
Having raised £1.8 million for charity while she was battling terminal cancer, in 2006 Jane knew her time left to fundraise was limited. As a result, she decided to set up the Leeds 10K to continue the fundraising vehicle for charities that she had started.
To mark its 15th year, the Leeds 10k has announced a new route. Traditionally following a route along Kirkstall Road and back to the city centre, participants will now be able to enjoy new city sights as the route changes for the first time since 2015.
The race is being organized by Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All, who are now advising runners, spectators, residents and visitors that a number of roads will be closed or have access restricted to ensure the safety of all those taking part.
The race will start outside the Parkinson Steps at 9am tomorrow morning and will finish on The Headrow.
Road closures will begin at 4am and roads affected will include:
Blenheim Terrace, Calverley Street, Cavendish Road, Cookridge Street, Great George Street ,The Headrow, Upper Basinghall Street & Woodhouse Lane.
The rest of the route closures will then come into force at 08:00 and the roads impacted include:
