Laura Allen & Alice Fairhall

Leeds Christmas 10k challenge was the brainchild of Laura and Alice in 2012 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Laura is a keen runner both on the hills and the fells and recognised the potential of the lovely woodland in Middleton Park immediately.



Alice enjoys all sport and has organised a  range of sporting events, from junior athletics festivals to large basketball tournaments.

We are extremely happy to have Hunslet RLFC as our partners for the sixth event at John Charles Centre for Sport.  They will be organising the fun run and hosting us in the Phoenix Bar for registration and awards.

See you on race day :)
