British rugby league legend Adrian Morley has set himself the challenge of walking from Salford’s AJ Bell Stadium to Leeds’ Emerald Headingley in under 12 hours.
The walk, which will see him travel 47.6 miles, will be done in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The MNDA are one of the charities heavily supported by ex-Leeds scrum-half and Morley’s former teammate Rob Burrow, who himself was diagnosed with the condition in December 2019.
Morley played for the Rhinos for six years between 1995 and 2000, before finishing his career with the Red Devils in 2015, hence his decision to walk between the stadiums of his two former clubs.
He said: “This will be a difficult task but it’s nothing compared to the daily challenges faced by my old teammate Rob Burrow and other fellow sufferers of MND.”
Morley has set up a Just Giving page, which has so far raised over £2000.
