Given the COVID-19 outbreak a number of the Run For All events in 2020 have been postponed till later in the year or have been moved to 2021. Given the Leeds 10K isn’t due to take place until July, at present we are hopeful we will still be able to stage this event as planned. However, the team are monitoring the situation closely and will advise all entrants should the decision be made to postpone this event also.
This is where it all began.
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 round and enjoy the day, this is the event for you.

Your timing chip is affixed to your race number, do not attempt to remove or fold the chip. Do not pierce the chip with safety pins.
Wear your chipped bib number on your chest on the outer layer of clothing e.g. if a running jacket is worn, wear your number on top of this. Do not obscure/ cover your bib number + chip with a bum bag/ running belt.
We encourage runners not to position their arms to start/stop a personal timing device on or right in front of the bib whilst running over the timing mats themselves as this impedes the signal. Arms can be positioned slightly away from the body, or the devices can be started/stopped when the runner isn’t on the actual mat.
Race numbers are not interchangeable and entries cannot be assigned, transferred, sold or gifted to any third party. Do not under any circumstances allow anybody else to run with your race number. Amongst other issues, this can create major problems for the medical team should they need to treat unknown runners.
Your bib & timing chip does not need to be collected in after the event and is yours to keep a memento of your race day!
