Foundation Member – Run For All
Run For All is part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane, from Leeds, made headlines around the world by taking part in a series of incredible endurance events – despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer.
By 2007 her declining health meant she was unable to take part in any more extraordinary undertakings. However, using the money she raised on her epic Ride Across America, Jane was able to sow the seeds for the Run For All Leeds 10K – the cornerstone of what would become her continuing legacy.
Today that one run has grown into one of the UK’s biggest not-for-profit events companies, providing a fundraising vehicle for a huge number of local and national charities.
Providing accessible events regardless of ability, demographic, age or background, Run For All now hosts successful mass participation events across Yorkshire, Lancashire, Lincoln, Norfolk the Midlands and Middlesbrough.
Every year tens of thousands of people take part in our popular events – running for charity, for a personal challenge or just for fun.
While we’ve changed since that first Leeds 10K – not least by growing significantly, Run For All’s philosophy remains exactly the same; high-quality, great fun events for absolutely all abilities.
