The race will kick off at 7:30pm with hundreds set to attend.

This comes shortly after the Tour De Yorkshire goes through other areas of Leeds, allowing more people to get involved in sporting events.

Horsforth Harriers are a local running club who welcome all different types of running abilities from beginners to advanced athletes.

They compete in races up and down the country but this race will be extra special in their home town.

This will be a change from their normal meeting spot at the Horsforth Community Sports Association.

Paul Gidlow, from the Horsforth Harriers club, came 7th last year with a time of 37.54.

Many locals are hoping they can do the same, if not better this year.
