With lockdown restrictions set to ease this summer, we have decided to move the date of the Cookridge Community Run to Sunday 11 July 2021.
We hope you can join us and raise much needed funds for Cancer Research UK and our local charities.

On Sunday 11 July 2021 at 9.30am, the second annual Cookridge Community 10K will take place around Golden Acre Park. There will also be a one mile Fun Run starting at 9.00am.
The races are in aid of Cancer Research UK and also support local charities including OPAL (Older People’s Action in the Locality), Scouts, Guides and junior sports clubs. The run is dedicated to local fundraiser, Gareth Dunn, who sadly passed away from cancer in 2018 aged just 27 after raising over £100,000 for Cancer Research UK.
There are two runs on Sunday 11 July 2021 – a scenic 10K trail race starting at 9.30am and a one mile Fun Run which starts at 9.00am. Both races start and finish at the Cookridge Village Scout Hall on Pinfold Lane, off Otley Road. Click here for more details of both runs and how to enter.
You don’t have to be a runner to be involved. We are looking for race marshals, car park attendants, first aid assistants and volunteers to manage traffic and water stations – maybe you just want to come along and cheer on the runners. Click here to find out how to help.
As a local, community-based event we could not run these races without sponsorship and support from local businesses.
Their generous financial support covers the costs of running the event, so all other monies raised go directly to charity.
