Dragons hall of famer Sean Hurley takes on his biggest challenge.

Many know the man that monitors our left hands like a hawk, the question is will he buffalo in the desert of Peru?

Sean Hurley, a 17 year long Dragon is taking on one of the toughest challenges of his life by competing in the Marathon De Sables Peru. Running along side him will be his pal Tom Otton.


It will take place from 26 November to 6 December 2017. Sean says "The biggest challenge will be missing his first Dubai Sevens in 17 years." 

The race is approximately 250 km divided into 6 stages, to be completed at free pace in self-sufficiency conditions in a desert environment and with the support of a quasi-professional organizing team.

Sean has begun his training and has less that 60 days to prepare his body for one of the toughest races on the planet.

Jebel Ali Chairman Stuart Quinn - "We are all immensely proud of Sean and his achievements on the rugby pitch for the JA Dragons, this is a different kettle of fish though. Not many of us have seen him run the length of the field recently let alone run a marathon every day for 6 days straight. The biggest rollsie of his life. We are all behind him 100%"

More details to follow in the coming weeks, you can follow his progress through his social media channels.


All the JA Dragons backing you all the way Shurley.
