With eight Super League trophies, two World Club Challenge Cups and one Man of Steel Award to his name, Jamie Peacock is one of the most coveted players in Rugby League history. As he moves onto his testimonial year with the club, Jamie is urging fans to take part in the ASDA Foundation Leeds 10K to raise funds for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal and Leeds Rhinos Foundation.
For the last six years, the Leeds Rhinos have invited supporters to challenge themselves and have fun by taking on the popular course.
This year, Jamie will be walking the event with his family, taking in the unique atmosphere and cheering on the ‘Run/ Walk with the Rhinos’ team.
Jamie said “I would urge as many people as possible to sign up and join me on the 12th July to run or walk the Jane Tomlinson Leeds 10k. In doing so you will be benefitting two great charities, the Leeds Rhinos Foundation and the Jane Tomlinson appeal. In my final season playing for the Rhinos it will be great to be part of the Run with the Rhinos team and to meet many supporters who have cheered me and my team mates on over the years. Jane Tomlinson was a truly inspirational woman and I am delighted to be a part of this massive event for the city.”
As well as the opportunity to take part with Jamie, a number of other familiar faces will be racing in 2015 including Barrie Mcdermott, CEO Gary Hetherington and our own Ronnie the Rhino!
‘The Leeds 10K always seems a fun and busy event and one I’ve always fancied doing.’ Jamie Peacock mentions, ‘a fair few staff at the club take part every year and it can get a bit competitive! With training and the season ahead being my priority- I’m choosing to walk it this time so me, my wife and son Lewis can do it together and take in the sights on the day.’
All participants on the day are invited to a pre- race training session with first team strength and conditioning coach and a post event celebratory ‘Finishers Breakfast’ to reward their achievement!
