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.
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 2024 for this very special event.
Participants can choose to support any charity that they wish to.
We believe that no one should be excluded from the transformational benefits of community sport.
Access Sport is a UK charity providing opportunities for vulnerable and disabled young people to change their lives through sport and physical activity.
We make inclusion the norm by tackling the access barriers faced by disadvantaged young people, focussing on the causes of exclusion, not just the symptoms.
We do this by training, equipping and supporting community sports clubs, organisations and volunteers to provide inclusive programmes, unleashing their potential to transform the lives of under-served young people in their local communities.
We work across all sports - team sports such as football, basketball and rugby, through to sports such as tennis, climbing, yoga, boxing and many, many more.
