AROUND 2,000 schoolchildren from across Leeds were due to hit the ground running today in memory of much-missed city teacher Ann Maguire.

The second annual Ann Maguire Memorial Fun Run is being held at St Theresa’s Catholic Primary School, in Cross Gates, this afternoon.

It has been organised by the GO Run For Fun campaign and will raise money for a number of different charities.

The two-kilometre run is also supported by Armley’s Holy Family Catholic Primary School and the Leeds Association of Roman Catholic Teachers.

Mother-of-two Mrs Maguire, 61, from Moortown, was fatally stabbed by pupil Will Cornick as she taught a lesson at Halton Moor’s Corpus Christi Catholic College in 2014.

Last year’s fun run was started by her widower, Don, and daughter Kerry as well as athlete Perri Shakes-Drayton.
