Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon 2024
Join us in 2024 for the 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 2023 Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon saw over 10,000 participants take the street of Leeds, taking in some of the city's 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.
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.
Entrants must be 18 years or over on event day.

Your race number will be posted to the address that you entered when you registered for the event. Race numbers will be posted to your registered address closer to event day.
If for any reason your number doesn't arrive you will need to collect it from the race office during the event weekend.
Further details will be shared shortly. If you are activating a charity entry your race pack will be sent by Run For All but you will need to contact your chosen charity direct for any fundraising pack and t-shirt.
If you have changed address since registration, it is your responsibility to inform us. However, we will also be sending out an email around eight weeks before the event to ask if you have changed address recently.
Race numbers will not be posted to those participants who provided a postal address located outside of the UK as we can’t guarantee the safe delivery of the race number.
However, if you do have a UK address that your race number can be posted to prior to the event, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details. Alternatively you will be able to collect your race number from the Race Office on the event weekend. Opening hours of the Race Office will be detailed on our website at www.runforall.com in the week prior to the event.
Your timing chip is affixed to your race number, do not attempt to remove or fold the chip. Do not pierce the chip with safety pins.
Wear your chipped bib number on your chest on the outer layer of clothing e.g. if a running jacket is worn, wear your number on top of this. Do not obscure/ cover your bib number + chip with a bum bag/ running belt.
We encourage runners not to position their arms to start/stop a personal timing device on or right in front of the bib whilst running over the timing mats themselves as this impedes the signal. Arms can be positioned slightly away from the body, or the devices can be started/stopped when the runner isn’t on the actual mat.
Race numbers are not interchangeable and entries cannot be assigned, transferred, sold or gifted to any third party. Do not under any circumstances allow anybody else to run with your race number. Amongst other issues, this can create major problems for the medical team should they need to treat unknown runners.
Your bib & timing chip does not need to be collected in after the event. It can be disposed of in general waste, or kept as a memento of your race day!
Important event day information will be sent to you by email and will also be available online.
Please add Run For All to your safe senders list to ensure you receive our key messages. If you’re not receiving our emails, please check your junk folder just in case.
Your race number will have the timing chip attached to the back. It will also have a tearable baggage label.
