Three young Super League players have raised over £1,500 by completing their 48 kilometre in 48 hour challenge for The Nick Smith Foundation.
Wigan Warriors players Amir Bourouh and Morgan Smithies, both 19, and Warrington Wolves player Riley Dean, age 18, ran the distance around Scammonden Reservoir on Monday and Tuesday this week (15 & 16 June).
They grew up playing with Siddal ARLFC in Halifax – the leading amateur club where Nick ‘Smudger’ Smith, was captain for many years. Nick died in December 2017 from Motor Neurone Disease at the age of just 38 and they wanted to raise money for the charity set up in his name.
