A group of dedicated runners tackled several different routes around Leeds all in one day, to raise money for a homeless charity.
Simon Jones, Tom Rogerson, and Mike Abrams Cohen recently did an impressive eleven runs around Leeds parks in one day, all to raise money for Zarach, a charity focused on helping homeless children in Leeds. The total route came to 55km, and took place at Temple Newsam, Wetherby, Chevin Forest, Woodhouse Moor, Bramley, Armley, Cross Flatts, Roundhay, Rothwell, Middleton Woods, and Potternewton park.
The team got some amazing support from some local runners at Temple Newsam, as well as a visit from Bex from Zarach, accompanied by her dad, at the Woodhouse leg.
Several runners’ clubs were also involved, including Abbey Runners, Leeds Chapel Allerton Runners, Hyde Park Harriers, Ilkley Harriers, Roundhay Runners, and the Valley Striders AC. The runners also received support from students from the Grammar School at Leeds, and also from Abbey Runners Junior Club.
The campaign has already surpassed its original goal of £3,000 and is still open to donations at the link below.
