Olivia Strong MBE (Politics and Sociology 2015) has jogged all her life. But in March 2020, as lockdown hit the UK, her usual loop took her on a very different path altogether. 

In this edition of our My Leeds Story podcast, Ed speaks to the founder of Run For Heroes about the story behind the record-breaking campaign (Run 5k, Donate £5, Nominate 5), her time at Leeds – including jogging around Hyde Park, and trips to the Yorkshire Dales – and her latest fundraising initiative: 5k May.
