Run With The Rhinos
The annual run is one of the flagship fundraising events for Leeds Rhinos Foundation and all funds raised will once again be split between Leeds Rhinos Foundation and the Rob Burrow Fund, which has been set up to support the former Rhinos star and his young family following his Motor Neurone Disease (MND) diagnosis in 2019.
In 2019, over 160 runners and walkers- comprising of Leeds Rhinos staff, supporters, corporate partners and a whole host of former players including Barrie McDermott, Jamie Peacock and Chev Walker- all competed as part of the Run With The Rhinos team and helped to raise over £11,500 for the club’s official charity.
Following the success of our virtual ‘Run With The Rhinos Reimagined’ fundraiser, the hotly anticipated return of the Leeds 10K in 2021 promises to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever before.
Bob Bowman, Chief Operating Officer at Leeds Rhinos Foundation said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone who supported our virtual Run With The Rhinos Reimagined event, but we are now delighted to be able to reopen registration for supporters to join our team at next year’s Leeds 10K.
“It’s always one of the highlights of our year and we’re already looking at a record number of participants which will make it an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. This is a perfect opportunity to set yourself a new challenge and the sense of achievement when you cross the finish line will be worth all the hard work.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has signed up for the 2021 Run with the Rhinos team, your support makes a huge difference in our community and helps our charity continue its work to change lives through sport.”
Run With The Rhinos 2021 takes place at the Run For All Leeds 10k on Sunday 4th July. Entry is £27 which secures your place in either our running or walking team for the event- the choice is yours!
