When the first Leeds 10K was held 10 years ago who would have imagined that it would grow into the event it is today?

It is testament to the passion of Leeds people - and the vision of Jane Tomlinson - that this event is now such a vital fixture of the calendar.

It has raised £4m and seems set to raise millions more.

Just as importantly, it keeps Jane very much in mind.

There will be local heroes such as former Rhinos player Kevin Sinfield and model Nell McAndrew. But to us, all the runners are local heroes.
