My worry is that in 20 years there’s no rugby left and society has a much bigger problem with, for example, obesity. A very British hero, the unassuming yet utterly superb Kevin Sinfield – rugby league great turned rugby union coach turned charity fundraiser, all while carrying a torch for the true meaning of sport and friendship. For a young player the question becomes: do you want to spend the best part of your twenties chasing a dream that could collapse at any moment?

After completing seven marathons in seven days in 2020, and running 101 miles from Leicester to Leeds in 24 hours the following year, Sinfield ran seven ultra-marathons in consecutive days last year, from Edinburgh to Old Trafford. I wanted it to give them a glow inside that our team [he had two fellow runners for the Ultra 7] were willing to go through hell too.Kevin Sinfield and team are fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease Association, Leeds Hospitals Charity, The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. Your donations will help the great work Motor Neurone Disease Association, Leeds Hospitals Charity, The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and My Name'5 Doddie Foundation do.

Perhaps rightly, and not surprisingly, Kev attributes the majority to his fundraising efforts - but it’s not told for self-appreciation or back-patting. THE INSPIRATIONAL NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER The extraordinary memoir of the sporting icon, devoted friend and fundraising hero who has inspired the nation in his fight against MND 'A very British hero, the unassuming yet utterly superb Kevin Sinfield - rugby league great turned rugby union coach turned charity fundraiser, all while carrying a torch for the true meaning of sport and friendship. Union followers not familiar with Sinfield’s league career will learn plenty from his recently released autobiography, The Extra Mile, published by Century. As a rugby league fan I've known about Kevin Sinfield since he started his career, but he has probably come more into mainstream over his ultra running challenges to raise funds for MND and to support his friend Rob Burrow. Both played together for the dominant Leeds Rhino rugby league team in the first 15 years or so of this century.He was knocked out cold twice as a player but, in reference to the ongoing legal action by former players, says: “I’m not inclined to retrospectively challenge a sport when I’m not sure the sport knew the risks or consequences. Despite Sinfield's celebrated career and exceptional feats of endurance, during which he's raised millions of pounds, he doesn't make this book about him and his achievements. He was and is close friends with Rob Burrow from their time together at Leeds Rhinos to the present day and through that friendship has become recognised for far more than his sporting career. His inspiring leadership and relentless focus on fundraising for MND shows how we should all strive to care more for each other' Gareth Southgate 'If you want inspiring, uplifting and empowering. Our previous challenges have shown how much this country cares and we hope you can support us once again.
