Speaking about joining the Run with the Rhinos team, Sinfield said: "I am really looking forward to giving the Leeds 10K a go this year. I am a Vice President of Leeds Rhinos Foundation so it is a charity I am very passionate about. They have a great team who are dedicated to improving the lives of the people they work with across Leeds and the money raised from this event will help fund that.
"The Leeds 10K celebrates its tenth anniversary this year and its success is a wonderful legacy to Jane Tomlinson CBE, who set up the race back in 2007. Jane was an inspirational athlete and I am proud to be doing this race and also raising money for her charity, the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, which supports children's and cancer charities.
"I hope many people will join me in the Run with the Rhinos team and raise as much money as possible for these two worthwhile causes."
