Run as a tribute to Rob and for all those patients and families still living with MND. 

Inspired by Leeds Rhinos hero Rob, who sadly died after battling with MND, the 2025 Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon will see over 10,000 participants take on a 26.2-mile route through Leeds.

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 incredible career and where he called home.

Help us make a difference for all families who are living with an MND diagnosis

The Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon is about more than just running, it’s about running together with mates, for a mate. Kevin Sinfield’s fundraising missions in support of Rob and the wider MND community have inspired and brought hope to so many of those living with MND.

We have received countless inspiring stories from runners who have been spurred on to take part in honour of Rob or who have been inspired to "Run for a mate, with a mate" just as Kev has.

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 2025 for this very special event.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How will my fundraising be used?

The Rob Burrow Centre for MND Appeal

Rob Burrow was an inspiration. Despite facing his own challenges, he was devoted to raising awareness and funds to help people living with MND and their loved ones, until the end. 

By taking part in this event, you will be helping to create The Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease, which will see all MND services housed under one roof for the first time.
