Good Luck Run Geordie Run

** UPDATE ** Less than 20 tickets remain for this event. Please order yours ASAP using the form below to avoid huge dissapointment!

On the 7th of October at 7pm a very special one off event will be taking place at my headline sponsor Benfield's VW dealership on Scotswood Road, Newcastle. Real Radio's Gary Philipson will be hosting "Good Luck Run Geordie Run!". This will all be happening just a matter of hours before I set off for Australia. You're probably going to leave the evening knowing exactly how the 18th century convicts felt before being shipped down under!

This is my chance to deliver an up close and personal account about by doubts and fears and how preparations have gone for Run Geordie Run Down Under ... with Benfield. I'll also be giving my honest and final thoughts on my chances of success in the very imminent 2600 mile run from Perth to Sydney through some of the most inhospitable and remote terrain on the planet.

Real Radio's Gary will be putting me under the spotlight with his usual hilarious style.  Finally, the mike will be thrown out to the audience where any burning questions they have can be asked about what is Run Geordie Run's most grueling and dangerous adventure to date.

Tickets for the Good Luck Run Geordie Run! are only £5, with every single penny of it going to The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the Children's Foundation. There will also be a raffle on the night with some very special prizes.

If you would like a ticket then please fill in your details in the form below. Payment is made via Virgin Money Giving. Your ticket(s) will be emailed within 24 hours.

Please get your ticket order in early as this event is sure to sell out fast.
