Leicester Town and Gown 10k Run

We're thrilled to be bringing the Town and Gown 10k running series to the City of Leicester on Sunday 5 March. The first ever Leicester Town and Gown 10k will take place in the central location of Victoria Park and the course is a three loop route incorporating both Victoria Park and Leicester University's Campus. Like all of our other events the run will be chip timed, marshaled throughout and you will be rewarded with a medal and tech t-shirt at the finish. Leicester has seen lots of success in recent years and has even been voted ESPNs UK's Greatest Sporting City 2016, and now we're going to turn it orange! 

Whether you’re going for a PB, or a fun runner, help us turn Leicester orange and fundraise for our charity Muscular Dystrophy UK. We fight muscle-wasting conditions, by finding treatments and cures and improving the lives of the 70,000 people in the UK affected. Our work depends on the support of people like you. You can read more about Muscular Dystrophy UK on our charity page

Thank you to Leicester City Council and the University of Leicester who have supported getting the event launched and are working with the Town and Gown organisers to create a route on their premises
