Sinfield completes Marathon challenge

Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield has completed his challenge of seven marathons in seven days.

Sinfield took on the challenge to raise funds for the MND Association, in support of former teammate Rob Burrow, who was diagnosed with the disease last year.

He completed his final race in Saddleworth this morning, and at the time of writing, has raised almost £1.5m for the MND Association.

Sinfield described the last seven days as ‘probably the best week of my life’.

“The donations and support fuelled that last run,” Sinfield said.

“This was just six mates trying to raise a bit of money for Rob, we had no idea it would turn into this.

“At the start, we were worried we wouldn’t get 77 grand let alone what we’ve done. Thank you for all your support.”
