Team Run Geordie Run 2013

It hardly seems any time at all since Team Run Geordie Run raised £2,949.59 for The Children's Foundation by doing the Great North Run in 2012. Pictured below are some of the team wearing those snazzy Run Geordie Run vests which were provided by my sponsor Benfield Motors. 
If you already have a place for this year's Great North Run on 15th September and have not yet selected a charity to raise funds for then why not consider joining Team Run Geordie Run and raise funds for The Children's Foundation? The minimum amount to raise is £100 and for that you will not only get a snazzy vest but also access to The Children's Foundation hospitality tent at the end of the run. There will be plenty of goodies to eat and drink there and, perhaps more importantly, access to an expert physio. Please get in touch at if you would like to join Team Run Geordie Run in raising funds for The Children's Foundation.

If you don't have a place then you can still run for Team Run Geordie Run but you will need to raise a minimum of £200 for The Children's Foundation and pay the usual entry fee. Please contact for further info quoting "Team Run Geordie Run 2013".

At the time of writing the team is already building nicely. It's going to take a lot of effort to beat last year's fundraising total but together I'm sure that, by running the 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields, we can make a huge difference to the lives of children in the North East.
