The Grand East Anglia Run (GEAR) 10K is the 12th Asda Foundation 10K event to be added to our ever popular series!

Taking place on Sunday 6th May, this well-established run is being staged by Run For All in partnership with Alive Leisure and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.

This new addition to Run For All’s calendar has a truly scenic route, taking in the pretty town centre, the River Ouse pathway, The Walks as well as a number of iconic, historical buildings such as the Red Mount, the Custom House and Greyfriars Tower. With a flat and fast course starting and finishing in the Tuesday market place the route takes runners past historical buildings such as the Red Mount Chapel, the Custom House and Greyfriars Tower.

Run For All is Not for Profit. An entry to a Run For All event helps support great causes, part of the legacy of late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. From Fun Run to Marathon, we welcome all ages and abilities - we really are For All. Run For All is part of the lasting legacy of the late amateur athlete and fundraiser Jane Tomlinson CBE. Jane, from Leeds, made headlines around the world by taking part in a series of incredible endurance events - despite being diagnosed with an incurable cancer. The mum-of-three defied her devastating diagnosis to complete challenge after challenge – from marathons and triathlons to ironman contests and cross-Europe cycle rides. Her final – and toughest – endeavour was a 4,200-mile bike ride across the breadth of America in 2006. It was a gruelling challenge that even an athlete in the peak of fitness would find daunting, let alone someone fighting cancer. As ever, though, Jane battled on to somehow realise her goal. Every year tens of thousands of people take part in our popular events – running for charity, for a personal challenge or just for fun.
