Join Jeff Stelling on his March for Men

Soccer Saturday’s Jeff Stelling will attempt to complete 15 marathons in 15 days this summer to support Prostate Cancer UK, the official charity partner of the EFL.

This physical test follows on from his 262-mile walk in 2016 from his beloved Hartlepool United’s Victoria Park to Wembley Stadium, all to raise money to stop prostate cancer being a killer.

Following on from the awareness gained and the £420,000 raised, Stelling has opted to go one better this year.

Stelling will begin his next Prostate Caner UK pilgrimage from St James Park, Exeter City, to St James’ Park, Newcastle United on Friday, June 2nd.

On day two of his 400-mile epic March for Men (Saturday, June 3rd), he and his team will stop at Ashton Gate, one of the 40 football clubs he will visit along the way.

The Soccer Saturday frontman will kick-off his second day of walking at Weston-Super-Mare AFC, before passing through BS3 and the Memorial Stadium.

As Stelling enters the final preparation stages for his mammoth trek, he is calling for all City supporters to join him on the Bristol leg of his quest.

Last year, over 400 people joined Stelling across the event, all of whom had a story to tell as to why they stood shoulder to shoulder with him to help raise money to beat a disease killing one man every hour in the UK.

Stelling said: “There were too many stories to tell in truth.

“Every single person [who joined a stage of his walk] was inspirational. I’d be waking alongside people and saying ‘why are you here?’, and the person I’m talking to might say, ‘I’ve been given six months to live.’

“They were spending their precious moments walking to support the battle against prostate cancer, so that other people in the future didn’t suffer in the way they were feeling right then.

“It was just inspiring individuals from start to finish.”

Stelling is expected to arrive at Ashton Gate between 3-5pm and supporters are urged to come and show their support.

The Sports Bar & Grill will be open from 3pm and will show full coverage of the Champions League final (7.45pm). To reserve a table, e-mail bristolsportsbar@bristol-sport.co.uk.
