Scully’s desert challenge
HE was a double winner of rugby league’s Man of Steel and is no stranger to crazy endurance challenges.
But ex-Saints player Paul Sculthorpe is planning his toughest mission yet – running 156 miles across Africa’s Sahara Desert in the gruelling Marathon Des Sables. The event dubbed the “toughest footrace on earth.
Speaking at the Steve Prescott Bridge naming ceremony, he said: “I’ve roped one guy in from Wigan (to take part with me). Funnily enough he’s a Wigan guy and a Wigan fan but I’ve just got him to sponsor Saints’ shorts.
“I think it was a moment of madness when I booked it. It’s five marathons in five days across the Sahara so it’s going to be tasty.”
