Run Geordie Run needs you (for the run across the USA)

The 3100 mile run across the USA between May 1st and August 8th 2025 will require a support team of volunteers to help make it a success. Duties will range from driving a motorhome, cooking, cleaning, shopping for supplies and ensuring that the runner gets his daily miles run! 

Your experience on the team will be against a backdrop of some of the most beautifully challenging and fascinating landscape from New York to California and the other 12 states in between. Not only is this a chance of a lifetime but it's a chance to play a key part in the success of a run that aims to raise tens of thousands of pounds for St. Benedict's Hospice (Charity No. 1019410).

If you are fit and healthy, hold a driving license, have a positive attitude, have good problem solving skills and can commit at least 14 days to the tour then this could be for you. If you're interested in applying then please complete the form below. Even if you're not 100% sure about joining the team at this stage please apply anyway as the informal discussion to be held in October will be an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. Like myself, support team members are unpaid volunteers. The cost of travel to the USA to join up with the team is at the volunteer's own expense.
