About the race

Proud winners of Running Awards 2019 - Best 10k in East Midlands

 Leicester Town and Gown is the newest 10k in the series, and is now in its third year. Like all of our other events, the run is chip-timed, marshaled throughout and you will be rewarded with a medal and goody bag at the end.

Muscular Dystrophy UK have a great affinity with Leicester, with amazing support from our local family funds and the local community. It’s also on the University of Leicester campus where our Honorary Life President, the late Lord Richard Attenborough, spent his childhood and school years.

If you’re wanting to run your first, your fastest or your most orange 10k yet – this is the race for you.

Congratulations to all who ran on the 17th March 2019, check our our highlights reel below!
