Important changes made to the last day of Kevin Sinfield’s challenge for Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow

Some important changes have been made to Kevin Sinfield’s final ultramarathon as he runs seven in seven days to raise money and awareness for Motor Neurone Disease.

It comes as his former Leeds Rhinos teammate and friend Rob Burrow was diagnosed with MND back in December 2019 and has been battling it since raising awareness himself.

Sinfield ran seven marathons in seven days in 2020 before running 101 miles in 24 hours in 2021.

Now he has taken on the this latest challenge.

Yesterday he stopped off at the home of the Rhinos Headingley Stadium where Burrow was waiting for him and the two shared a heart-felt moment.

Today, he will arrive at Old Trafford during the Rugby League World Cup Final as Australia take on New Zealand in the women’s decider prior to a clash between Australia and Samoa in men’s final.

However, there have been some important changes made to today’s challenge by the former Leeds Rhinos and England skipper.

There have been two changes to the route today between Oldham, Sinfield’s home town, and Manchester where the challenge will draw to a close.

You can see the changes here.

Please focus on the different way points when deciding where to wave Sinfield on.

Sinfield has already set off this morning after yesterday completing his sixth ultramarathon at Bradford City’s stadium.
