Famous faces take part in the Yorkshire Marathon

Thousands of runners took part in the Yorkshire Marathon today. It's only the third time the event, in York, has been held. But the race - part of Jane Tomlinson's Run for All series, has already raised millions of pounds for charity. Helen Steel talks to Jane's husband Mike and former Leeds Rhinos player Keith Senior in her report.

Super League legend runs in Yorkshire Marathon

Former Leeds Rhinos centre Keith Senior took part in the Yorkshire Marathon 2014 and was back for another attempt this year just hours after seeing the club complete the Treble at Old Trafford.

The 38-year-old Headingley favourite played in the very first Super League game in 1996. Keith began his career at Sheffield Eagles where he was part of the team that pulled off a shock win over Wigan Warriors to lift the 1998 Challenge Cup.

A Great Britain international, he joined the Rhinos in 1999 and enjoyed much success winning the Grand Final four times.

Since retiring from the game, Keith has taken on a series of challenges including a 1,000-mile bike ride from Perpignan in the south of France to the Headingley stadium.

"Jane's legacy - she started it and Yorkshire is finishing it"

Jane Tomlinson's husband Mike paid tribute to his late wife at the Yorkshire Marathon today in York.

It launched in 2013 and this year included the Yorkshire 10 Mile and a record 120 teams in the Northern Gas Networks Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay.

The marathon is staged by Marathon Yorkshire Ltd, a sister organisation to Jane Tomlinson's Run For All, the group behind the popular Asda Foundation 10K Series, the Plusnet Leeds Half Marathon and the Plusnet Yorkshire Half Marathon-Sheffield.

These events, along with the marathon, stand as part of the lasting legacy of the late fundraiser and campaigner Jane Tomlinson who raised almost £2m for charity by tackling a series of epic challenges, including cycling over 4,000 miles across America, despite being diagnosed with incurable cancer.
