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 know gender stereotypes and institutional bias are holding girls and women back from sport, and in life, and we believe that:
1). It is wrong to deny women and girls access to sport.
2). The distinct physicality of women and girls must be understood and reflected in sport.
3). When sport includes women and girls it helps to tackle gendered economic and health inequalities
For this reason, we aim to:
• Deeply understand women and girls in all their diversity, at each lifestage.
• Raise Awareness of gender inequality in sport and why It matters.
• Pilot Solutions developing policies and concepts for change.
• Inspire Change through campaign, collaboration, and influence.
