Leicestershire Running Festival

5K, 10K & 10 Miles

Sunday 22 October 2023

We are delighted to announce that we are the official charity partner for the Leicestershire Running Festival 2023.

Physical activity, PE, play and sport are vital for the future health of our nation and a critical tool to improve mental, social and emotional wellbeing.

Join #TeamYST and get moving with thousands of other runners to help build brighter futures for young people through the incredible power of sport and play.

All races will start and finish in front of the beautiful Prestwold Hall in Loughborough. The courses give you the opportunity to take in the rural surroundings on traffic free roads before finishing back in front of the hall.
