An appeal has gone out for volunteers to help at the City of Lincoln 10K, which in 2020 is taking place on Sunday 14th June.

The event is organised by Run For All, part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE, who made headlines around the world by taking part in a series of incredible endurance events – despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer.

By 2007 her declining health meant she was unable to take part in any more extraordinary undertakings. However, using the money she raised on her epic American adventure, Jane was able to sow the seeds for the Run For All Leeds 10K – the cornerstone of what would become her continuing legacy.

Today that one run has grown Run For All into one of the UK’s biggest not-for-profit events companies, providing a fundraising vehicle for a huge number of local and national charities. Every year tens of thousands of people take part in our popular events – running for charity, for a personal challenge or just for fun.

Each year, thousands of volunteers are required in a variety of roles to ensure the Run For All events go without a hitch and the participants have a fantastic time.

Organisers are looking for individuals or groups that can offer their time to volunteer.

A spokesman said: “It would be amazing to have your support whether that’s a group that can volunteer or individual volunteers; your support is greatly appreciated. It is always a brilliant day to be part of and a rewarding community event for local groups to be involved with. It’s a great opportunity to be involved in an event which allows people to achieve a goal and being part of an event that makes a difference to so many regional and national charities.”
