He’s back. And he needs your help more than ever.

After his exploits marching from Hartlepool United to Wembley Stadium last year, Jeff is taking on 15 marathons in 15 days in 2017. And you can join him.

From today (Friday 2 June), Jeff will set off from St James Park, the home of Exeter City, in an attempt to walk 400 miles and visit over 40 football clubs, reaching Newcastle United’s St James’ Park on Friday 16 June.

It is hoped that the walk with raise half a million pounds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Day 11, on Monday 12 June, sees Jeff and co finish the day at Huddersfield Town, walking 25.1 miles from Burnley FC.

The day offers the steepest and one of the most challenging legs of this epic challenge, with a real mixture of broad open countryside and urban walking.

The route includes a big push up and over the ancient Long Causeway. The Calder Valley and a canal towpath follow, with another steep hill to be tackled before arriving in Huddersfield.

That being said, the challenge and hard work is rewarded with great views and spectacular scenery as Jeff heads from Lancashire to West Yorkshire.

Graded 5 star for hills, Day 11 also marks the start of the final five days, as Jeff goes further than ever before.

Book your place alongside Jeff by paying a £25 registration fee and pledging to raise a minimum of £300 in sponsorship, and help stop prostate cancer being a killer. Visit to sign up.
