This year, Leeds Rhinos Foundation is inviting participants to sign up for any of the three events and details of the fundraising packages with exclusive benefits for those who join their teams have been announced.
Funds raised will contribute to Leeds Rhinos Foundation achieving its purpose to change lives through the power of sport.
Bob Bowman QPM, Leeds Rhinos Foundation CEO, said: “Launching the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon with Run for All in 2023 was an incredible highlight of the year and I loved taking part in what was an amazing challenge.
“For the inaugural event, we were astounded by the turnout of runners, with the large majority people running their very first marathon, in aid of fantastic charitable causes. We hope that this year, this number will grow, and as a result, the amount of money raised climbs significantly.
“Our work supports an array of people in the heart of our community and specifically supports people in need. With your help, we can continue to change lives through the power of sport, whilst taking part in an amazing physical and mental challenge together.”
