The inaugural Rob Burrows Marathon proved an unforgettable day out for our vibrant communities in Leeds. Driven by Kevin Sinfield of Oldham to raise funds for motor neurone disease charities on behalf of friend and former Leeds Rhinos teammate Rob Burrow, thousands of fundraisers, first time runners, athletes and supporters came out to run for him and bring awareness for MND.
Headingley Stadium was the starting and finishing point of an extraordinary running experience that featured an exclusive route through Lawnswood, Eccup, Adel and Otley town centre before climbing “the Hill,” a continuous 3.5 mile climb to Bramhope before returning back down again back down towards Adel. Crowds cheered the entire way.
Friends and family cheered the runners at key spectator hotspots, such as Leeds Philharmonic Chorus singing classic songs to inspire participants. Additionally, spectators were warmly received by Otley and Yeadon councillors and community groups who helped coordinate this event.
Rob Burrow, 40, who was diagnosed with motor neuron disease four years after an impressive 16-year playing career for Leeds Rhinos and multiple appearances for England, described finishing a marathon named in his honor as one of the greatest days of his life. Rugby league legend Kevin Sinfield carried him tenderly over the finish line from Headingley Stadium while their families and a huge roar from Headingley Stadium welcomed them both upon crossing.
