Our runners taking part in the Great North Run

Six runners are taking part in the Great North Run for us next month.

Jacky Massos, Karen Bowes, Karen Grant, Angela Walter and Mike Davey (pictured left) and Jason Massos will be tackling the half marathon. The run is a 13.1 mile route from Newcastle City Centre to the coast in South Shields. The BBC will be broadcasting the event live on Sunday 8 September!

This is the first time we’ve had charity places for the Great North Run, probably the UK’s most well known half marathon event.

Good luck to our runners in the final few weeks of their training. Here’s hoping the weather up North is kind on the day!

Finally, if you would like to support our team’s efforts, make a donations on our Virgin Giving page. Don’t forget to leave a comment as it’ll really give them a boost and may even make them run faster!
