We are a 24 hour search & rescue service to save lives at sea


January 2024 I promised to support my wife achieve one of her bucket list items of running a 10k race, by running it with her, especially as the event is happening on her birthday this year and in our home city of York.

The thing is I am not a runner, suffer with asthma and need to learn how to overcome both of these with just over 6 months of training.

The Jane Tomlinson Run For All York 10k has been described as one of the country’s most beautiful city runs. Since its launch in 2009, the event has also grown into one of Yorkshire’s most popular 10Ks offering runners the unique opportunity to race through the heart of this wonderful city.

The route starts and finishes in Knavesmire Road, close to York Racecourse. It then takes in some of the city’s most historic landmarks, including the ancient city walls, Clifford’s Tower and the minster.

The atmosphere will be electric from start to finish.

The Jane Tomlinson Appeal helps children to be happier and healthier and improves the lives of people living with cancer.

However, for the past few years we've been raising money for the RNLI because as canoeists and lovers of the water, having people there just in case these is a problem provides confidence that support will be there if needed.

You see, too many people are still drowning. More than ever we need the RNLI’s help. As a charity, the RNLI depends on our donations so it can go on saving lives and keeping us and our loved ones safe.

RNLI lifesavers are our lifeline. They’re the lifeboat crews who provide 24-hour search and rescue right around the UK and Ireland. The lifeguards keeping watch on 240 of the busiest beaches in the UK and Channel Islands. And the RNLI safety teams and educators working tirelessly to stop people getting into trouble in the first place.

Thank you.
