Sinfield’s 101-mile run from Leicester to Leeds was split into 7km sections, each of which had to be completed within 60 minutes. The challenge has raised £800,000 for the MND Association and the Leeds Hospitals Charity to build a new care home in the name of his former teammate Rob Burrow, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December 2019. He told BBC Breakfast he was ‘broken’ after crossing the finish line.
