The Asda Foundation Leeds 10K was Jane Tomlinson’s vision. Jane founded the race using funds she raised by completing a series of astonishing endurance challenges, all whilst battling terminal cancer.
Jane died in 2007 soon after launching the first 10K. Today, the event has grown to become the highlight of the city’s running calendar; a hugely popular, inclusive and superbly-supported race for participants of all abilities.
In many ways, the Asda Foundation Leeds 10k captures the can-do, inspirational spirit of its founder.
Throughout the route that takes in many of the city’s historic landmarks, crowds come out in force. A fantastic atmosphere and friendly volunteers make the event unforgettable for all.
Whether you’re running for a PB, fundraising for a cause close to your heart, or simply aiming to get around and enjoy the day, this is the event for you.
We believe that no one should be excluded from the transformational benefits of community sport.
Access Sport is a UK charity providing opportunities for vulnerable and disabled young people to change their lives through sport and physical activity.
We make inclusion the norm by tackling the access barriers faced by disadvantaged young people, focussing on the causes of exclusion, not just the symptoms.
We do this by training, equipping and supporting community sports clubs, organisations and volunteers to provide inclusive programmes, unleashing their potential to transform the lives of under-served young people in their local communities.
We work across all sports - team sports such as football, basketball and rugby, through to sports such as tennis, climbing, yoga, boxing and many, many more.
