Kevin Sinfield completes solo marathon in personal best time for pal Burrow

Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield completed his solo marathon on Sunday morning in a personal best time of 3 hours and 18 minutes with over £5,000 raised for MND Association and Leeds Rhinos Foundation.

Sinfield was due to run the Manchester Marathon on 5th April to raise awareness and funds for his great friend Rob Burrow. Rob, the eight time Super League Champion, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease just before Christmas 2019. 

However, due to the coronavirus, the marathon was understandably postponed but Sir Kev has never been one to shy away from a challenge. He planned his own marathon route and instead of large crowds, 25,000 fellow runners and a course that is the UK’s flatest major marathon, he set off on his own on the 26.2 miles special route he has designed around his home village of Saddleworth, with all the hills and challenges the Pennines could throw at him.

Whilst we appreciate times are tough for everyone at present, if you felt like you wanted to support Kevin, we have set up this page so you can donate to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association, who are helping Rob and all those impacted by MND in England and Wales, and the Leeds Rugby Foundation who help transform lives through sport.

Thank you for your support and well done to Sir Kev. You can donate here
