RUN FOR ALL – LEEDS HALF MARATHON – 8TH MAY 2022

The Leeds Half Marathon is Yorkshire’s biggest and probably loudest event of its kind. Jane Tomlinson CBE herself was proud to start the race back in 2003.

The much-loved run raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity every year and often attracts more than 7,500 runners.

But what makes it special is the crowds. Support for runners along the route is always phenomenal, whatever the weather. Every participant will get a boost from the words of encouragement they receive.

QRC was represented by the following;

Philip Lee – 01:51:09

Giles Cook – 01:58:29

David Bean – 02:02:27

Tracey Stewart – 02:12:11

Nicola Smith – 02:58:06

Nicole Jagger – 02:58:06

Well done everyone, great day and lots of PBs.

Leeds Half Marathon – 14 May 2023 | Run For All | Run For All
