The Jane Tomlinson Anniversary Challenge team with Greg and Bob will run the Paris Marathon, cycle 600 miles in six days through France, Belgium and England, via Leeds, to London where a they will run the London Marathon – 652 miles in eight days! They will complete the Leeds leg at Headingley Stadium, home of the Rhinos on Wednesday 18th April – half way through!
“I am delighted to be raising money for the Leeds Rugby Foundation by taking part in the Jane Tomlinson Anniversary Challenge” said Greg. “I am daunted by the many miles but it’s great to have the support of the Leeds Rhinos. The way they won the Super League title will give us motivation to grit out teeth and get on with the job, which will help to raise money for the great work the Leeds Rugby Foundation does.”
