Launch of 2010 Junior Run & Mini Fun Ru

I bumped into Mike Tomlinson this morning at BBC Radio Leeds...

Mike was there to publicise the fact that the Leeds Half Marathon on Sunday 9th May will incorporate a 2.5km Junior run for ages 9-15years and a separate 1.5km Mini Run for all ages between 3-8 years, accompanied by an adult. This year the Junior and Mini Fun runs will be FREE to all participants and there will also be a school challenge with team prizes in both primary and secondary categories.

I hope that schools across Leeds will enter a team and encourage their students to get out there and take part in this great community event. This year the money raised from the event will go towards the refurbishment of the Children’s waiting area in the Paediatric x-ray and ultra sound department at Leeds General Infirmary.

A wonderful cause well worth running for.
