One of Leeds’ most popular runs returns this weekend with thousands taking part in the 10K.

Set up in 2006 by Jane Tomlinson, who during her lifetime raised £1.8 million for charity while she was battling terminal cancer, the Leeds 10K continues to fundraise charities to this day.

The 10K, which sees runners take off from the University of Leeds’ Parkinson Building before making their way around the city, is set to take place this Sunday, June 23, with thousands of runners taking on the challenge in teams, or individually.
