With their distinctive yellow T-shirts, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research runners always make a big impression.

Our charity is unique as many well-known faces join us at events across the country as part of our TVTimes celebrity running team.

From Coronation Street, Emmerdale and The Bill, to Shameless, Midsomer Murders and Snatch – our stars form the biggest celebrity charity running team, taking part in marathons and fun-runs for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. 

The team was formed in 1982 by former TVTimes Advertising Director Ken Lomas, who sadly lost his daughter Karen to leukaemia in 1986. In 2005, Ken was awarded an MBE in recognition of fundraising for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

Ken says: "Thanks to the support of TVTimes & Adidas we have built up a fantastic team of celebrity runners. For all they do for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, each and every one of them is truly a star.”

We can provide:

  • Interview opportunities with Ken Lomas and our TVTimes Celebrity runners
  • Facts, stories, quotes and images
