Long walk for away match

Have your say

A GROUP of rugby league fans will be crossing the Pennines next month on foot.

Members of Doncaster Rugby League Supporters’ Trust are donning their boots to take part in a 52-mile sponsored walk all the way from Doncaster to Rochdale.

They will set off on July 1 to arrive in Rochdale for the league fixture on July 3. Money raised will be split between Doncaster Rugby League Supporters’ Trust and the RFL’s Steve Prescott Foundation.

Trust member Tracey Armstrong said: “So far six people are taking part in the challenge, with additional volunteers taking part on the last day. Fifty-two miles is no walk in the park but we’re determined it won’t beat us!”
