Race Entry Information
Rob Burrows Leeds Marathon Race Entry
The website organising the Rob Burrows Leeds Marathon is https://www.runforall.com/events/marathon/leeds-marathon/
The Rob Burrows Leeds Marathon was brand new in 2023 and return in May 2024.
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 7,777 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.
The race has been inspired by former Leeds Rhinos captain Kevin Sinfield OBE running challenges in recent years in support of his friend and team mate Burrow. The marathon is a partnership between Leeds City Council and Jane Tomlinson’s Run For All – the not-for-profit sporting events company that stages the popular Leeds Half Marathon and Yorkshire Marathon.
The circular marathon route will take in some of Leeds most scenic countryside and outer suburbs, journeying around Woodhouse Moor before travelling up through Headingley, Adel and Bramhope and heading out to Otley and back for the big finish.
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.
The event will be held in support of the Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease Appeal as well as the MND Association. However, we recognise that many participants will have their own reasons for taking part. As such, entrants are encouraged to raise money for a charity of their choice, or for one of our partner charities.
