Leeds 10k in photos: Superheroes, dinosaurs, and Darth Vader compete as event makes joyful return

After the cancellation of last year's race due to coronavirus, this morning (September 5) runners flocked to Kirkstall Road to take part in the 10k - and we were there to capture the magic.

Serious runners seeking a personal best competed alongside charity runners at the colourful event - and, as usual, there was no shortage of imaginative fancy dress costumes.

This year's 10k was particularly joyful, after last year's event was cancelled by organisers Race For All due to the coronavirus pandemic, and today's competition had to be rescheduled from May 9.
