Unbelievable Jeff! TV legend Stelling to make Merseyside return for fourth charity walk for Prostate Cancer UK
Marine AFC will welcome television legend Jeff Stelling when he marches across the country for Prostate Cancer UK for a fourth time later this summer – and we are delighted to say that he’ll be coming to the Marine Travel Arena.
After raising more than £1m walking across the UK in 2016, 2017 and 2019, the long-serving Sky Sports presenter is set to return to the region in August and September to support Prostate Cancer UK.
This year he will be taking on four walking marathons in four regions, starting in the North East on August 30th, heading to Yorkshire on the 31st, before marching through Merseyside on September 1st. The final day, September 4th, will see his 100-mile stroll end in London.
Jeff last visited Merseyside in 2017, and this year’s route will take him from Tranmere Rovers and end with a short stroll across Stanley Park from Everton to the finale at Liverpool. He will also visit the Marine Travel Arena and the iconic Aintree racecourse earlier in the day.

Anfield will be a fitting finale on a day that Stelling pays tribute to Liverpool legend Ray Clemence, who sadly died last year after a long battle with prostate cancer. His son Stephen and other family members will join Jeff on the day.
Jeff’s aim? To fund lifesaving research to improve testing, treatments and care for those affected by the most common cancer in men. “One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. I deal in stats, but that one still shocks me. This is our Dads, partners, brothers, grandads, uncles and friends,” Jeff said. “That’s why I wear the Prostate Cancer UK ‘Man of Men’ badge. That’s why we’ve marched across the UK three times, helping raise more than £1m for crucial research to beat prostate cancer. And that’s why I’d love you to join me this summer. As ever we’ll visit some iconic clubs and I’m hoping a few familiar faces will join me along the way.
“Last year, we lost the great Ray Clemence to prostate cancer. A terrific goalkeeper and a terrific human being. “I also lost my mate, Lloyd Pinder, to the disease a few months earlier. I met him on the second day of my very first march for Prostate Cancer UK up in Yorkshire. This highlights once more what an indiscriminate disease this is, and it’s for men like Lloyd and Ray, their families and everyone affected by prostate cancer that we march again.”
