RUN WITH THE RHINOS

Leeds Rhinos legends Kevin Sinfield MBE, Jamie Peacock and Barrie McDermott have all pledged to take part in the Asda Foundation Leeds 10k as part of the Run with the Rhinos team on Sunday 22nd November 2020, which will raise money for Leeds Rhinos Foundation and Rob Burrow Fund. 

Last year, a record 167 runners and walkers joined staff, supporters and a host of Rhinos legends including Barrie McDermott, Jamie Peacock and Chev Walker to compete in the 10k and raised over £11,500 for our charity, which has helped fund projects that support some of the city’s most vulnerable people.

This year, all funds raised will 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 recent Motor Neurone Disease (MND) diagnosis.

Entry is £27 and there is a minimum suggested fundraising amount of £50 for Leeds Rhinos Foundation and Rob Burrow Fund. 

Benefits of being a Run with the Rhinos team member include:

• Run with the Rhinos race top to wear on the day
• Team training session followed by a Pasta Party! (to include pre-race nutritional advice from Leeds Rhinos experts) – Date TBC
• Great fundraising incentives
• Exclusive post-race event invite

Following the success of the walking team last year, there will once again be the option to walk the 10k course alongside your friends and family. So if running isn’t for you but you still fancy being part of the team, you can do so by joining our 2020 walking team!
