Join us in 2023 for the very first 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.

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.

We can’t wait to see you at the start line.



Online entries for the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon are now closed. 

Entrants must be 18 years or over on event day.
