Leeds Rhinos Foundation are delighted to announce that Rhinos legends Jamie Jones Buchanan and Barrie McDermott will be once again part of our Run With The Rhinos team to tackle this year’s Run for All Leeds 10k on Sunday 5th September.
The duo are long-time supporters of the event and are the first two former Rhinos stars to confirm their place in this year’s fundraising team, which is helping to raise vital funds for Leeds Rhinos Foundation and their former teammate Rob Burrow’s Fund, set up to help him and his young family as he continues his battle with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
After last year’s virtual event due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions, the ‘Run With The Rhinos’ will once again be able to come together and take to the streets of Leeds in the showpiece fundraising event with the Rhinos legends being joined by supporters and staff from both the club and Foundation for the run.
Having completed his virtual 10k with wife Emma last year, Leeds Rhinos Foundation Trustee Jamie-Jones Buchanan is returning for more and may seek some guidance in his preparations from Leeds 10k veteran Barrie McDermott, who has been a member of each Run With The Rhinos team since 2012.
Run with the Rhinos is a great idea for anyone looking to set themselves a challenge in 2021, while also raising vital funds for two fantastic causes, and there is still plenty of time to sign up and join the legends in this year’s team.
Other benefits of being a Run with the Rhinos team member include:
• Limited edition Run with the Rhinos race top to wear on the day
• Great fundraising incentives
• Exclusive post-race event invite with the Rhinos legends
• Exclusive Strava group for training plans and motivation
Entry is just £27 and there is a suggested fundraising amount of £100 to support LRF in their life-changing work across Leeds, with a contribution made to the Rob Burrow Fund.
As in previous years, there will also be the option to walk the Leeds 10k with us. So even if running isn’t for you, there is still chance to get involved by joining our 2021 RWTR Walking Team!
