runners in Jane Tomlinson's Run For All York 10k
York runners hit the streets for charity.

This weekend thousands of people took part in the fifth Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All York 10k.

The scenic route took runners past many York landmarks including York Minster, Clifford’s Tower and the Shambles.

Around 6,000 dedicated runners and supporters were at York’s Knavesmire this Sunday for the run, supporting their chosen causes and charities.

The race is inspired by the late charity fundraiser Jane Tomlinson who undertook a series of fundraising sporting events after being diagnosed with a terminal illness and raised more than £1.5 million before her death in 2007.

Amongst the chosen charities for fundraising support this year were the Teenage Bone Cancer Trust in memory of Guy Francis from York who died in 2002 and York based overseas charity York International Service.

The first runner to cross the finish line was Wondiye Fikre Indelbu of Ethiopia in 31 minutes and 16 seconds.

Keep you eyes out for next year’s event in August 2014 if you fancy taking part.
