Event Background

This year, Jane Tomlinson Appeal announced it had reached a £1 million fundraising goal.

The Leeds 10K was started by 10-year-old Megan Smith from Otley, West Yorkshire, and Nell McAndrew, alongstanding supporter of the event and of Jane's Appeal.

Megan was asked to start the race in memory of her mum, Sue, who had recently died of breast cancer and also for all those taking part in memory of loved ones.

The success of the Leeds 10K led to the launch this year of the Jane Tomlinson Junior and Mini Runs in Leeds, which took place in May.
