Finally taking on the big one and it feels apt to start with the inaugural Leeds Marathon in honour of Rob Burrow.

As usual, hoping to raise some money for Sunshine and Smiles, a charity close to my family, who support children with Down Syndrome and their families in Leeds.

As a small, local charity, any donations are massively appreciated and go a long way.


Event Details

Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon

Former Leeds Rhinos player Rob Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December 2019. Since then, Rob and his family have campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness and funds to support other families living with MND. The Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon will see over 10,000 participants take on a brand new route through Leeds that starts and finishes at Headingley Stadium. Taking in some of Leeds’ most scenic countryside and outer suburbs, the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon will be a fitting tribute to the city that launched Rob’s career and which he calls home. This is an event that truly is for everyone, so whether you are an experienced runner or have never thought about running an event before, we welcome all abilities to join us in 2023 for this very special event.
