The preparation is over and Day One of the Askvas Walk for Precky has arrived. Are they ready for the sore feet, sore legs, blisters and extreme fatigue? You will be able to follow the walkers every step of the way by following @StevePrescott1 or visiting the Steve Prescott Foundation website.

The team of walkers aiming to complete 900 miles in just 12 days, 24 hours a day, includes former Rugby League stars Lee Briers, Tommy Martyn and Paul Sculthorpe MBE plus retired FIFA referee Mark Halsey. The walkers will set off today, 5 May, from Lands End reaching John O'Groats on 16 May.

Some very high profile sports stars have also expressed their interest in joining the walk and ambassadors of the SPF Chris Joynt, Martin Murray, Andy Reid, George Riley and Shaun Briscoe will also be pullng on their walking boots to take part.

This incredible challenge is in memory of Steve Prescott MBE, a truly inspirational person whose legacy will continue through the Steve Prescott Foundation a registered charity which supports the Christie Hospital, the Rugby League Benevolent Fund and the Oxford Intestinal Transplant Unit.

The principle walk sponsors, Askvas and Container Cabins, are supported by Wedi, Adele Carr Financial Recruitment, DSD Sales, Rothwell Electrical and Galaxy Insulations along with contributions from Robinson, Consumer Credit Solutions, Econoloft.

The walk is going to be an epic journey not only for the walkers but also the travelling support.

Wolves' fans can show their encouragement too as the walk route passes through Warrington early evening on Friday 9 May when the Wolves host the Catalan Dragons at The Halliwell Jones Stadium. The walkers will be presented to the crowd before the game before they depart on the next leg of their journey.

Good luck to all those taking part.
