Challenge Events

There are many ways to help us support prisoners who can read to teach those who can't. Why not take on a challenge and raise funds to give the gift of reading?

We’ve teamed up with Run for Charity to offer a range of exciting events for you to take part in. For some events, we have a free place so it's always worth checking us with before registering.  

Here's some of the highlights in for 2017

Leeds 10k

The 2016 Asda Foundation Leeds 10K promises to be a very special occasion for all those taking part as the event celebrates its 10th running. Revamped in 2013, the route is now faster and flatter. It starts in Vicar Lane, takes the runners out and back along Kirkstall Road and ends in front of cheering crowds outside the Town Hall.
