The Asda Foundation Leeds 10K is the original legacy run of the late Jane Tomlinson, who took on a series of endurance challenges to raise nearly £2m for charity despite battling terminal cancer. Large crowds lining the route, a fantastic atmosphere and friendly volunteers all contribute to the success of this fabulous flat run that takes in many historic city centre landmarks. Whether you’re an experienced runner looking for a PB or a novice simply aiming to get round, this is a perfect event for you to get involved with to make a difference to the wellbeing of students at York. There is a £150 minimum fundraising target for taking part in this event, which will go to a student scholarship of your choice or mental health research at the University. *Please note that after signing up for this event, you will receive an email with further information with race registration and YuStart fundraising steps within 2 working days*

Saturday 13 July
11:30 - 13:30
Join us for our fourth and final ramble round the “cardinal points” of London, we’re out west. Guidebook writer Peter Aylmer (Langwith, Maths/Economics, 1972) will lead us through the two very different Royal Parks that surround Hampton Court Palace - Bushy Park with its wilder feel and the more formally sculpted Home Park.  The walk starts and finishes at Hampton Wick Station and includes a ferry crossing of the Thames, a short stretch on the Surrey side of the Thames Path, and a brief cut through the grounds of the Palace.  It will be just over six miles long, although you can shorten this distance to four miles if you choose to return from Hampton Court Station instead of Hampton Wick. Please be prompt, wear good walking shoes and bring a picnic. Alternatively, you can buy food during our first stopping point at the café in Bushy Park. There is a £6 booking fee per head, including £1 for the ferry crossing.  We usually donate the remaining £5 fee to benefit students at York, but if you would prefer to receive a refund, please let us know within 48 hours of attending the event and we will be happy to arrange it.  Please note there is a South Western Trains service from London Waterloo, departing 10:57, calling at Vauxhall (11:01), Clapham Junction (11:06) and Wimbledon (11:13), arriving at Hampton Wick at 11:31.  Buses 281 and 285 both stop at Hampton Wick Station.  We have limited places, and they will be on a first come first served basis.
