Charity Canal Challenge

Which path will you take?

Join us for a fantastic day raising money for Leeds Cares by walking (or running!) along the idyllic Leeds & Liverpool Canal on 14th July. Everyone’s welcome and as a local charity, you’ll be helping us to enable exceptional healthcare and the best possible health and wellbeing for patients in Leeds, across Yorkshire and beyond.

This amazing event is delivered in partnership with the fantastic Canal & River Trust. 

We have three routes to choose from, each longer than the last:

The Family Track

4 miles from Kirkstall Forge to Leeds

This wheelchair and buggy friendly route is perfect for families with children of all ages. There’s even a ‘Challenge Pack’ for under 12s with activities for them along the way.

Adult £10
Children (U18) £5
Family of four £22

The Middle Track

14 miles from Saltaire to Leeds

This longer and more challenging route takes you from historic Saltaire to Leeds. If you’re feeling athletic, why not try running it!

Adult £15
Children (U18) £10

The Epic Track

29 miles from Skipton to Leeds

A little longer than a marathon, this route begins in the pretty market town of Skipton then leads you through beautiful countryside all the way to Leeds. You’ll need an early start to walk
it in time!

Adult £15
Children (U18) £10



So, whether you fancy a fun family stroll, a jog or a challenging day’s trek, there’s something for everyone.
