City Ground to other grounds

4 March 2013


One Nottingham Forest fan is raising money for Prostate Cancer UK by running to his team’s away games. 

Serial road runner Rowan Staszkiewicz, 27, has completed gruelling runs to Peterborough’s London Road (58 miles), the King Powers Stadium (26.2 miles), Pride Park (17 miles) and St Andrews (54 miles).

Then on Saturday he completed the 45 mile journey from the City Ground to Hillsborough to cheer on his side help raise vital funds. 

Rowan came up with the idea after remembering back to when Derby fans flew a plane over the City Ground with a banner to show they’d beaten their rivals with ten men last season.

He explained: “This act of local rivalry inspired me to raise money for charity, a much more worthy endeavour and a much more satisfying use of people’s generosity.

“So through city suburbs and across B-roads throughout the autumn and winter this season, I’ve been running and, on this occasion, cycling, to Forest away matches.”

Each run is linked to a Football League stadium and raises money for the Football League’s Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK.

Prostate cancer kills one man every hour, and affects one in every eight men. Find out about how Prostate Cancer UK fights to help more men survive at: prostatecanceruk.org/football
