Runners from the Farsley Flyers, Bramley Breezers, Abbey Runners, Pudsey Runners and Pudsey Pacers groups all took part in the inaugural Rob Burrow Marathon yesterday.

The event named after former Leeds Rhinos star Burrow, who was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019, saw more than 12,000 people take part.

It was inspired by Sinfield, who pushed his former team-mate around the course in a specially-adapted wheelchair.  He then lifted Burrow up and carried him, to the delight of spectators.

WLD photographer Simon Cullingworth was on hand to capture some of the runners from West Leeds:
