Head Coach Craig Hammond will be joining Leicester Tigers Defence Coach Kevin Sinfield in his Extra Mile Challenge today.
Sinfield is running 101-miles from Mattioli Woods Welford Road to Headingley Stadium in 24 hours from Monday, November 22 – Tuesday, November 23.
He will lead a team to undertake the remarkable fundraising challenge to run from Leicester to Leeds, the home of his former club Leeds Rhinos, in aid of two charities in support of the motor neurone disease community.
Sinfield is aiming to raise £100,000 which will be equally split between the MND Association and the appeal to build The Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease in Leeds.
The run will be split into 7km sections, to mark Burrow’s iconic shirt number, with each section to be completed within an hour before the next leg starts an hour after the previous.
Hammo will be joining Sinfield on Leg 6, around 13:40 from Ruddington Arms to St Peter’s Square.
