Good Luck Kevin!

As ambassador to our company, Romero is supporting Kevin all the way.

We are playing our part by sponsoring his shirt as he runs 101 miles in 24 hours. If anyone can do it, our Rhino at Romero can!

The Rhino on the Road

In December 2020, Sinfield led a team that raised over £2.7 million by running seven marathons in seven days.

In early 2021, Kevin announced his partnership with Romero Insurance Brokers. We also took the opportunity to sit down with Kevin at Headingley Stadium and discuss some of our shared values. Romero’s original series, The Rhino at Romero, covers Kevin’s background in rugby league, his success as well as his charity-work achievements.

Today, Kevin Sinfield has announced his next challenge – The Extra Mile Challenge. This sees Kevin attempt to run from Leicester Tigers’ home at Mattioli Woods Welford Road to Emerald Headingley Stadium in Leeds in 24 hours. Starting on Monday 22nd November, the run will be split into 7km segments, each must be completed within a hour before the next one starts on the hour. Originally, the journey was planned to cover a distance of 100 miles but the actual final distance covers 101 miles with Sinfield once again proving he will always go the ‘extra mile’ for his friend and former team mate Rob Burrow.

Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December 2019 and since then has publicly championed raising funds and awareness for everyone impacted by the disease.

Romero Insurance Brokers would like to once again praise our partner, Kevin, for his fundraising efforts and wish him the best of luck in this gruelling challenge. His work is so impactful and inspirational, raising awareness of such a cruel disease, MND, and the families of those affected by it.

Running four marathons back to back in a day, Romero will be behind you every step of the way!
