Max To Run Half Marathon

  • Mighty Max to take part in Wigan Half Marathon in aid of Joining Jack

  • Warriors link up with Wigan Run Festival for Family Funday fixture against Huddersfield on Sunday 19th March

  • All runners to get free ticket to game

Wigan Warriors Mascot Mighty Max will take part in the inaugural Wigan Half Marathon.

The Warriors have teamed up with the organisers of the Wigan Run Festival which takes on Sunday 19th march - the same day that Wigan face Huddersfield Giants in Super League.

Every runner in the half marathon, 5K and Family Mile will be eligible for a free ticket to the game and the official Warriors mascot will take part in the main race thanks to Rob Hart.

Hart, a long-time volunteer with the Club, will run the 13.1 miles as Max having previously done the same for the Great North Run.

Rob and his Deralam Laminates colleagues Luke Rimmer and Donna Cadwallader will be raising money for Joining Jack in doing their run.

You can help Rob raise money for this great cause by donating directly to their fundraising page HERE or text migh53 then the amount you want to donate £1 to £10 to 70070.

JustGiving sends your donation straight to JOINING JACK and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more. Thank you for your support!
