Wheeeerrrreeeeee has the t-shirt been this week?

The Run Geordie Run T-shirts are continuing to sell really well in aid of St Benedict's Hospice (Charity No. 1019410) and The Children's Foundation (Charity No. 1000013). 

Over £2400 has been raised so far as a result of t-shirt sales and this has helped the overall charity fund reach the current total of £7,307.

Each Run Geordie Run T-Shirt, as shown here by Toon fan Neil Whittaker at the Newcastle v Scunthorpe match, is priced at £10 each. Now guess how much of your £10 goes to charity? THE FULL £10!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your eyes are not deceiving you. You read it correctly folks. You pay £10 per t-shirt and all of it goes to the 2 charities. This is the way we like to do our fundraising at Run Geordie Run! 

Production for each t-shirt was kindly paid for by reader Peter McCowie and made, at cost price, by my friends at They are screen printed, front and back, for durable and long term use. That means they are good for the gym, the pub, the beach or even all three! Sizes available are S, M, L,XL and XXL.

Thanks to Neil for posing with his Run Geordie Run t-shirt. I've sat next to Neil for the last 2 seasons and he only just recently realised that it was me who was planning to run across the USA after reading about me on and putting 2 and 2 together.
